Two versions of the T'BoltMon software are available at the Trimble website.

V2.60 for the older Thunderbolt can be found at: 


V3.16 for the Thunderbolt E can be found at:


Both work with windows and seem to be identical with my older OEM 

CAVEAT: If the T'Bolt is powered ON, while the PC is booting up, The 
mouse can act erratically.
My solution is to isolate the T'Bolt serial line with a RS-232 serial 
I suspect that streaming RS-232 data confuses the computer to think that 
the NMEA data is from the mouse.
To monitor the T'Bolt with the software, I enable the RS-232 line with 
the switch box.

My PC only has 1 RS-232 serial port, so using the external switch box is 
handy for other applications,
and more cost effective than a PCI or PCI-E serial card.
