When I try to use PRSolve, I get the following problem:
PRSolve -o 54402330.08o -n 54402330.08n
PRSolve, part of the GPS ToolKit, Ver2.1 5/07 run2008/10/15 09:22:25
Opened log file prs.log
test 0:File 54402230.08n is neither BCE nor PE file.
location 0:aps\positioning\PRSolve.cpp:FillEphemerisStore:2110

Any reasons why my nav file is causing a problem? What is BCE and PE?

ALERT! If you answer a question - or have a question you asked answered by someone - please remember to edit the page and set the status to answered. The status is in a drop-down list below the edit box.

BCE = Broadcast ephemeris file

PE = Precise ephemeris file

It does appear that the tool is not recognizing it as a valid RINEX nav file. Can you attach the nav file to this topic?

-- RickMach - 15 Oct 2008

Note that it is likely something in the header that is causing the problem. We had this occur with another rinex file that had a time with 60s in the second field of the header (not 0-59) and was rejected because of that.

; The nav file is pasted below. Thanks for the help

Hi Fred,

I pasted a version of your nav file into a text file, and I processed it with an obs file from a reference station here at ARL. PRSolve was able to generate a solution:

PRSolve -o s081233a.08o -n test.n
PRSolve, part of the GPS ToolKit, Ver 2.1 5/07, Run 2008/10/20 22:44:46

Which version of PRSolve are you using? And what environment you running it in?

-- BenHarris - 21 Oct 2008

I am using "PRSolve, part of the GPS ToolKit, Ver2.1" on windows xp using cygwin. I got PRSolve to work, but it does not like some files.

Are there specs that I should know about what the obs and nav files must contain for PRSolve to work?

-- FredLawton - 22 Oct 2008

I did not get the specs for what the obs and nav files must contain for PRSolve to work.
