Trimble runpkr00 Latest Versions

Please note that we only provide copies of the executable that are provided to us by Trimble.


The runpkr00 program is both developed and supported by Trimble. The program runpkr00 was created to translate Trimble’s proprietary data-file formats (R00/T00/T01/T02) into teqc readable files (.DAT or .TGD). It allows users to extract .DAT or .TGD files from R00/T00/T01/T02 files logged by Trimble GPS/GNSS receivers. Note that for GNSS signals to be extracted from "Record Type 27" (RT27) files, the "-g" flag must be added separately to the command line, which will produce a .TGD file. Both .DAT and .TGD files can then be interpreted by teqc.

e.g. the command "runpkr00 -g -d filename.T02" will produce "filename.TGD" if RT27 format was logged and "filename.DAT" if not.  Using the "-g" flag at all times is recommended.

The command "runpkr00" with no arguments produces a help file (equivalent to the "man" page).

A quick summary feature (-q flag:  "runpkr00 -q filename.T0x") will return file metadata in versions 5.31 and later.

If you encounter errors when running teqc on tgd files produced by "runpkr00" version 5.37 or earlier (produced by NetR9 or other receivers with 4.80 firmware installed):

  • A temporary workaround for these older versions is to exclude subtype 33 records by adding ’-k2048’ to the command line arguments when executing runpkr00 (e.g. runpkr00 -k2048 -g -d inputfilename.T02

Note: runpk00 version 5.40 outputs two new records types (record 28 subtype 1 for SBAS and record 28 subtype 11 for Beidou/Compass). These new record types are currently skipped by teqc. If the .tgd or .dat file you are translating with teqc contains SBAS or Beidou/Compass data, you can ingnore teqc notices regarding record 28:

  • For example: ! Notice ! decompose_Trimble_28_55h_9(): unknown Trimble .dat record 28 subtype 1 in file ’5024K68287201309150000a.tgd’ ... skipping
