Trademark Use Policy
Trimble Navigation Limited creates innovative GPS, laser and optical products for a variety of different markets.  The brands that Trimble uses to promote these products are recognized by customers world-wide, which makes them extremely valuable to Trimble.  Proper use of our trademarks helps maintain and increase the value of our brands.
The following trademark guidelines are provided to facilitate consistent, proper use of Trimble trademarks.

Trimble Trademarks

Trimble maintains many trademarks for its products and services.  Click here to view the list.
Some examples of our trademarks are the word "Trimble," the globe and triangle logo, and the words "Trimble Navigation Limited."  Most, if not all, of our product names are trademarks. 

Proper Use

You may use Trimble trademarks to refer to Trimble products or services, as long as such references are appropriate and consistent with these trademark guidelines. Trimble resellers and distributors should refer to the trademark guidelines available on our distributor website. Please click here to log in. 

A Trimble trademark should not be used in a manner that would suggest that the trademark is owned by a person other than Trimble.  A Trimble trademark must not be used in a way that makes a customer think that Trimble sponsors or manufactures another party’s product, or that another party is the sponsor or manufacturer of a Trimble product. 

  1. Corporate logo and trade dress.
    The corporate logo consists of the name "Trimble" and the globe and triangle design.  You may not use the corporate logo without prior, written permission from Trimble.  Where the corporate logo appears on Trimble products, packaging or marketing literature provided to you, you may not remove, cover or alter the corporate logo.

    Trimble’s trade dress is the look and feel of our business. This style includes the format, colors, templates, packaging, labels, signs, posters or other promotional materials created by Trimble.   You may not copy or imitate Trimble’s trade dress, website, packaging or advertising materials.

    • If you are licensed to use the Trimble logo, you may use it only pursuant to our corporate logo guidelines.
    • You may not remove, cover or alter the Trimble logo or trademarks where they appear on any products, packaging or other materials provided to you by Trimble.


  2. Products, domains, business names, slogans
    Trimble reserves all ownership rights to our trademarks, including all rights to the Trimble name and logo.  Therefore:

    • You may not register top-level domain names with our trademarks or trade names in them or use subdomains with our trademarks in them.  This prohibition includes the trademark "Trimble."

    • You may not use, incorporate or combine any of our trademarks into your product names, business names, slogans or trade names.

    • You may not combine any Trimble trademark with your trademarks or the trademark of any third party.

    • You may not use or register, or apply to register any trademark that is the same as, or confusingly similar to any Trimble trademark.

    • You may not use our trademarks in your slogans, or adopt or use our slogans, in whole or in part, as your own. You may not use our slogans in a manner that confuses or misleads customers.


  3. Website Links
    Trimble reserves all ownership rights to our trademarks, including all rights to the Trimble name and logo.  Therefore:

    • You may link to our website at www.trimble.com, from your website, provided that you notify the website user that they are being re-directed to the Trimble website.
    • Examples of acceptable language are: 

                "Click here to visit the Trimble website."
               "Clicking this link will re-direct you to the Trimble website."


  4. Use our trademarks as adjectives. 

    • Our trademarks may never be used as possessives.  The following examples show correct and incorrect usage:

                Correct use:   The Trimble® GPS receivers are wonderful.
                Incorrect use: The Trimble’s new features are wonderful. 

    • You may not abbreviate, shorten or use a "nickname" for any Trimble trademark. 

               Correct use:    The GeoExplorer® CE series handheld computer.
               Incorrect use:  The GeoCE handheld computer.

    • Every time you use a Trimble trademark in the text of a document, you must follow it with the proper descriptor.  If you are unsure of the proper descriptor, please consult Trimble marketing communications personnel.  Some examples of trademarks with the proper descriptors are:

               The GeoExplorer® series of handheld computers.
               The Terramodel® software
               The BlueCap® data adaptor
               The TrimTrac® locator
               The AgGPS® Autopilot™ system


  5. Attribution of ownership.

    • If you use Trimble trademarks on your website or refer to them in your printed marketing materials or advertising of Trimble products, you must provide a notice in your document that tells the reader who owns the trademark.  Attribution is usually provided in the credit line of a printed document directly following a copyright notice.  An example of proper attribution is:

               "Terramodel is a trademark of Trimble Navigation Limited."

    • You do not have to give attribution to Trimble’s ownership of a trademark if the trademark is used in a press release.


  6. Merchandise & Advertising Materials
    • You may not use the Trimble trademarks on any of your promotional materials, including but not limited to merchandise such as t-shirts, bags, pens, keychains, golf balls or other items.

    • You must obtain authorization from Trimble prior to using our trademarks in any advertising materials, regardless of the medium. 

    • You may not print our trademarks or logos on your business stationary or business cards.
