Trimble Catalyst is a subscription service that allows you to generate and use centimeter-accurate GPS positions on your smartphone or tablet. As a Catalyst subscriber you can choose to be automatically charged monthly on an unlimited use plan, or alternatively pre-pay for on demand access on an hour-by-hour basis.
Do I need GPS Correction services to use Catalyst?
Trimble Catalyst uses GPS corrections to generate highly accurate GPS positions. Your subscription includes access to the Trimble Corrections Hub, which lets you use Trimble and Trimble partner correction services.

If the Trimble Corrections Hub does not provide suitable coverage in your location, you will need to provide your own local correction service.
