Anders Wallin,
I tested here and really rnx2rtkp do not process PPP without a nav file.
I do not know why as i supply sp3  precise orbits.

about ION, GPS users with single-frequency receivers need ionospheric electron content.
if useful, you can get it here:

Nav can be taken from here, if needed, not your case:

Yes, I am using rtkget to download the relevant SP3 (IGS_EPH) and CLK (IGS_CLK) files also. I am not using any IONEX file since I don't know where to get that.

I also tried submitting the same RINEX file to the online tool CSRS-PPP over here:

This online tool works with the automatically generated RINEX 2.11 Observation data file from my Dicom GTR51. I did not submit a separate navigation data file to the site.

However with RTKLib I cannot get PPP calculations to work with just the Observation+SP3+CLK data.

As described before RTKPOST works when I manually generate both Observation and Navigation rinex files from the Dicom - but this option is not automated in the Dicom user interface - so it's not really an option for continuous use.
