Collector Install on Trimble Juno T41 Android (4.1.2 Jelly Bean)

Blog Post created by BGrod on Apr 14, 2015

The Trimble Juno T41 runs Androids OS (4.1.2 Jelly Bean) but it is not a supported device for the Google Play store (see attachment of supported devices). Collector is distributed through Google Play (for Androids) and the App Store (for iOS). Because the Juno T41 is not a supported device you cannot install Google Play or manage app installations, notifications, and updates. This is a bit of a crutch as the installation and update versions will have to be managed manually.  If you decide to choose this device because you want to use Collector and need a higher degree accuracy below are the steps to install Collector.

 

  1. Install APK Share (app management software) or other similiar app
    1. On separate Android device supported by Google Play
  2. Install Collector on the device with APK Share
  3. Run APK Share
    1. Back Up – Collector App
    2. Packages the app as an APK file (install file)
  4. Transferred the install file (Collector.apk) to the Trimble device
    1. Downloads folder
  5. Open File Manager – navigate to Downloads folder
    1. Run the Collector.apk to begin install
