I posted an unanswered query about this back on 5/3/08.
It seems Trimblemon is intended as a monitoring package for all of the 
Trimble fleet of 12 channel nav receivers-it has 12 SV parameter 
'slots' on the main screen. But it has no timing specific monitoring 
capability, such as already exists in tboltmon- well, none I could 

The odd thing is- as noted in my prior post, on the Trimble site, the 
docos for the Thunderbolt E (download the pdf file) discuss the use of 
Trimblemon, but the support s/w made available from the website for 
the Thunderbolt E is actually Tboltmon.  Probably different writers 
for the website and the product support docs........

Regardless, it appears Tboltmon is THE one to use  for a
