Trimble R-Utilities

Trimble R-Utilities

No longer supported by Trimble. Trimble R-Utilities is a group of programs that permit remote control of certain Trimble GPS receivers. R-Utilities provide receiver configuration capability via direct serial, phone modem, and wireless radio protocols. The latest version of R-Utilities for Windows, LINUX, and Solaris should be able to translate R00, T00, and T01 files. (Please let us know if you encounter a problem by sending an email to support at unavco.org.) Note that the R-Utilities can not be used to download a NetRS GPS receiver, only to translate the T00 file acquired from the receiver.

Trimble’s Latest RUNPKR00 program that converts T00/T01 Files to DAT is not embedded in R-Utilities. The Trimble runpkr00 program allows users to extract .DAT or .TGD files  from R00/T00/T01 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 to the command line, which will produce a .TGD  file.  Both .DAT and .TGD files can then be interpreted by teqc.

Comment by Benedetto Porfidia on Tue, May 30th, 2017 at 2:06 PM
Dear Sirs Within a wide research program focused on geodesy of Italy, I‘m trying to couple a Trimble 5700 receiver with a raspberry pi A+ sbc to make a standalone permanent GPS station supplied by solar cells and batteries. The choice of the type of sbc is due to its power consumption, but it runs only Linux binaries compiled for arm CPU architecture. I was planning to use your R-Utils for Trimble receivers to interface with it. Can you suggest me how to make R-utils running on that platform? Best regards and thanks in advance Benedetto Porfidia
