Minimum system requirements

Your Android device must at least meet the following system specifications to install the Trimble Catalyst service:

  • Android 5.0 or higher

  • 64-bit CPU with at least 4x Arm cores (6x or more Arm cores recommended)

  • Maximum core speed 1.5 GHz or higher

Recommended Android system settings

The Android operating system is highly customizable. Some settings can negatively affect the performance of the Trimble Catalyst Service by limiting the computing resources that are usable by the application. To optimize performance of Trimble Catalyst, we recommend your Android phone or tablet adheres to the following system settings:

  • Disable Battery Optimization: Battery optimization is designed to prolong battery runtime by lowering/reducing system resources used by individual applications. Ensure that battery optimization is disabled for any applications using Trimble Catalyst, including the Trimble Catalyst Service, and the Trimble Mobile Manager app. For information on how to disable Battery Optimization, refer to the user documentation for your Android device.

  • Disable Root Access: Trimble Catalyst will not work on devices that have root access enabled. For information on how to disable Root Access, refer to the user documentation for your Android device.
