5” Modular Handheld
Portable productivity for the field worker that demands performance
When you work in the field and are on the move you need a device that is small enough to carry in your hand, big enough to take the knocks, and powerful enough to get your work done. You don’t have to compromise mobility for productivity.
Keyed-in to the needs of the mobile operator
Make the most of the 5” screen without losing space to on-screen navigation buttons, while providing ease of use in all environments. Program common tasks to physical function keys and speed up your workflow.
Built Smart & Tough
Professional gear that’s ready for the rough and tumble
You can rely on your equipment being able to work everywhere you need to for as long as you need to. That means you can get the job done without worrying about getting caught out by equipment that isn’t up to the task. When you’re on the road work a full day on a single battery, or for those really heavy tasks or long days simply change the battery.
High Brightness Display
Truly stand out sunlight performance
When you’re working outside you’ll find the display easy to read and operate, without the backlight draining your battery. Whether in cloud or full sun, avoid simple data entry errors and avoid making simple mistakes caused by mis-reading the display.
Fully GMS certified Android 8.1
The only handheld field computing option
By deploying AndroidTM in the field you get access to the most modern, usable, and fastest growing mobile ecosystem. Being GMS certified means you have full access to Google’s entire ecosystem of Android applications and services including Google’s own suite of tools. Access to the Google Play Store not only allows easy update of installed applications, it also gives you access to the millions of other applications already published. As a GMS certified device you are guaranteed that the Nomad 5 handheld meets Google’s complete set of strict system capability and performance requirements.
An expandable mobile toolkit enabling flexible, versatile field solutions
Trimble EMPOWER removes the limits from your mobile field solution. Make your mobile device fit your workflow with already available Barcode, UHF RFID (GEN2 & AEI) and high accuracy GNSS modules, prototype your own modules with the easy to access Trimble EMPOWER Developer Program, and add new capability as further modules are introduced to the market by Trimble and partners.

EMPOWER your Nomad 5
The Nomad 5 comes with one module bay to connect an already available module or develop your own custom module. Already available modules include RFID/Barcode, Barcode, and high accuracy GNSS.
Meet Your Modules
Introducing the Trimble EMPOWER Asset tracking (GEN2/AEI RFID/Barcode, Barcode) and high accuracy GNSS modules. Create an integrated rugged solution that works for you with these optional modules, or utilise the additional capabilities of the Developer Program modules to really EMPOWER your solution.
The Nomad 5’s integrated EMPOWER module bay allows you to expand the functionality of, and maximise the investment in, your base device.
Streamline your fleet maintenance by maintaining a small number of base devices and the modules designed to work with them.
Satisfy your customers’ needs faster than you could with a non-modular solution. Develop a new module rather than a new handheld, and achieve the workflow goals of any customer with one device.
Having a fully rugged portfolio of base products and modules allows you to select any combination and be assured that the solution meets your workflow needs and Trimble’s rugged standards.
There is no need to pay, in time or money, for functionality that your solution doesn’t require. The Trimble EMPOWER Platform separates the cost and effort of base unit development from satisfying specific workflow needs through custom development.
Long read range, high accuracy and ability to read multiple EPCglobal GEN2 and/or AEI tags even in crowded conditions.
Rapid scanning, omni-directional and multi-code reading. High read rates under any orientation for real world use conditions.Datasheet
Integrated GNSS receiver delivers data accuracy, reliability, and quality---all in the palm of your hand.
Integrated L1 Antenna
No need for an external antenna, cables, extra equipment, or poles.Datasheet
Customize your Nomad 5 with the Trimble EMPOWER Developer Program
Build your own solution without making the entire handheld computer. With a Trimble EMPOWER Module Development Kit (MDK) and Software Development Kits (SDK), you can demonstrate and create customer solutions with minimal investment and risk.Learn More
