Trimble GPS Configurator software can be used to check the status of a receiver. We do not recommend it for configuring the receiver; to configure a 5700 or R7 receiver, see How to configure the receiver using Trimble Configuration Toolbox software.
To proceed with GPS Configurator, download the freely available Trimble GPS Configurator software, which runs only on a Windows platform:
Power the receiver if it’s not already running.
Connect receiver port 2 to your computer’s serial port using a lemo/db9 programming cable. If your computer does not have a serial port, use a USB-serial adapter.
Open Trimble GPS Configurator. Select the type of device you are connecting to and the port you are using on your computer. Click Connect.
Use the tabs along the top to view different receiver, tracking, and configuration characteristics.
