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.


Physical Keys

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.
