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 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.
