You can calculate the location of the SV from it's Ephemeris given the time of the set of Observations.

Another Oh!  Can the TBolt be made to send us Ephemeris data?  If so, and if it will also give Code Phase, I'd like a simple way to get that in a compact structure and onto our local LAN from the machine running Heather :)

It would be nice to be able to support the Trimble receivers.   With L1 only data I am getting results in the < 200 mm range.  The Z12 with L1/L2 data gets me to around 40 mm.
