Installing the Trimble Installation Manager

    • If you are using a Trimble TSC7 or Trimble Tablet, install the Trimble Installation Manager directly onto the Tablet.

    • For all other controllers, install the Trimble Installation Manager on the office computer that is performing the update.
  • The Trimble Installation Manager updates itself automatically, when required.

Trimble Installation Manager (Offline)

The functionality provided in the offline version of the Trimble Installation Manager is the same as the online version, except that the offline version enables you to download and save copies of the Trimble Access software or Trimble receiver firmware files so that you can update the device at a later date, when you may not have an Internet connection. You must have a working Internet connection to download the Trimble Installation Manager offline version the first time, and whenever you download files required to update your device.

Note – You cannot use the offline version of the Trimble Installation Manager to install Aerial Imaging software.
To create a local copy of the Trimble Installation Manager (Offline) you will need the serial number of all devices that you plan to update.
