Which Com Port to use on My Trimble


Some Trimble Devices have 2 GPS Comports, while others only have one.  Others Trimble devices have 1 comport that can act like 3. This can get confusing so we made a chart.

Use the Trimble Com with – TerraSync, Trimble Positions, Trimble GPScorrect

Use the NMEA Com with – ArcPad, ArcGIS for Windows Mobile, lots of other 3rd party applications

Use SiRF Com with – ArcPad
