We work with Trimble for GPS service. Print out and complete these forms to set up service:
- a Trimble GPS application
- a billing and shipping form, so we know where to send your GPS, and
- a credit card authorization form.
There is a $299 hardware fee and $89 installation fee for each GPS.
Bring your Food Truck Permit application when you apply for GPS service. Trimble needs to see the signature on this page even if you application is still in progress.
Submit your applications
Send your Trimble documents to:
Send a copy of the first page of your Food Truck Permit application with your signature by email or fax to:
Please send a follow-up email to make sure Trimble got your applications.
You will receive your GPS within two weeks. Trimble has to process your application and test the GPS before they send it to you.
Don't open the GPS package. You will have to get a new GPS if you open the package. Trimble will contact you to set up an appointment to install the GPS, and they will send an email with your account login information.
Trimble will give you paperwork to sign to enter into a contract.
Before you get started
