As we prepare for the Connect migration and Terraflex platform upgrade to Version 4.1 - Google Maps will no longer be available for use as a base map in TerraFlex or InSphere.

  • In TerraFlex we recommend using the Trimble street or satellite base map layers instead.
  • For InSphere we recommend using the Trimble street or Esri satellite base maps.

If this change causes a significant issue for you or your customers please get in contact and we can look at what other alternative are available.


More information on the migration plan will be posted here in due course

This is a significant problem. We used Google maps to locate remote features (trees) with a reasonable level of accuracy for broad scale assessments. The Trimble satellite imagery is poor - and I shelled out for three new licenses in early May with no warning. Several colleagues are in the same boat. Is Trimble going to improve their imagery, or at least use an alternative, clear provider such as Bing or Esri?

I have teraflex my only option is Google Base Maps. How do I access the Trimble Street base map?

Hi Kristy

In the mobile application you can access this from the Map window via the layers icon


Insphere has a drop down base map selection option in the map window

Trimble base maps are not loading with a cellular data connection for myself and colleagues. Are other's experiencing this problem?
