SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 6, 2015 -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that it has added several new third-party apps to its Android-based Trimble TMX-2050 display. The addition of these apps demonstrates Trimble's continued commitment to ensure farmers have access to specialized mobile apps that manage today's complex farming operations and address region-specific needs.
The new apps fall into several categories including:
* Diagnostic tools to identify and address implement error codes
* Fertilizer calibration charts for various brands of spreaders
* Identification of nutrient deficiencies
* Planter adjustment recommendations for various planter brands

The apps are available for download from App Central marketplace on the TMX-2050 display. App Central provides farmers with enhanced flexibility to install apps, view descriptions and images, report issues, connect with developer partners, and stay current with on-demand updates. Users can search and find the apps most useful to their farm operations, language and regional compliance requirements.
"As we continue to add third-party apps on our TMX-2050 display, we are providing farmers with more localized choices so they can select the tools that best fit their machines, applications and regional needs," said Pierre-Andre Rebeyrat, marketing director for Trimble's Agriculture Division. "These apps can enable farmers to obtain needed information more easily and quickly, leading to more efficient management of their farm operations."
Every new TMX-2050 display solution includes wireless connectivity allowing farmers to view ongoing field activities, real-time commodity prices, real-time weather conditions to guide irrigation and field deployment decisions, and other valuable task information in the Connected Farm dashboard—without ever leaving the machine cab. It also enables wireless data transfer of as-applied maps and other field activities such as planting, spraying or harvesting, simplifying the overall management and transfer of farm data files.
