Charging Spare Batteries
See Chapter 2, Accessories for information on using accessories to change spare batteries.
Charging Temperature
Charge batteries in temperatures from 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F). Note that charging is intelligently controlled by
the MC55.
To accomplish this, for small periods of time, the MC55 or accessory alternately enables and disables battery
charging to keep the battery at acceptable temperatures. The MC55 or accessory indicates when charging is
disabled due to abnormal temperatures via its LED. See Table 1-1.
Powering On the MC55
After inserting the battery or when turning the MC55 on for the first time, the splash screen displays for about a
minute as the MC55 boots, then the calibration window appears.
Calibrating the Screen
NOTE
The Calibration screen can be accessed by pressing Blue key - Backspace key.
To calibrate the screen so the cursor on the touch screen aligns with the tip of the stylus:
1.
Remove the stylus from its holder on the side of the MC55.
2.
Carefully press and briefly hold the tip of stylus on the center of each target that appears on the screen.
3.
Repeat as the target moves around the screen, then tap the screen to continue.
Resetting the MC55
There are three reset functions, warm boot, cold boot and clean boot. A warm boot restarts the MC55 by closing all
running programs. A cold boot also restarts the MC55, and also initializes some drivers. Data saved in flash
memory or a memory card is not lost.
If the MC55 is not functioning properly, perform a warm boot first. If the MC55 still does not respond, perform a cold
boot.
Performing a Warm Boot
Hold down the red Power button for approximately five seconds. As soon as the MC55 starts to boot release the

Power Connection
Please read all of the following instructions before beginning.
WARNING!
A properly trained technician must perform the power connection. Improper connection can damage
your vehicle, cradle or MC55. Refer to the vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for instructions for removing
power.
To connect the cradle to power:
CAUTION
1.
When setting up connection for this cradle, only use the power input cable provided with this cradle.
Locate the vehicle power source.
NOTE
The ideal location for connecting the vehicle cradle power input cable would be an accessory output in your
vehicle’s fuse panel. The vehicle cradle should be added to a circuit with a maximum load capacity for the
cradle and the original circuit. Refer to the vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for identification of the circuit.
If a fused output is not available, the vehicle cradle must be installed with the provided in-line fuse holder and
UL Listed 5A fuse. The fuse protects the vehicle from an electrical short on the power line to the cradle.
To use the cradle to charge the MC55 and spare battery, when the vehicle’s ignition is off, connect the cradle to
unswitched power.
Accessories 2 - 15
2.
Route the power input cable from the cradle’s power port to the connection point for the vehicle’s power
source.
CAUTION
3.
The means of routing and securing the power input cable from the cradle through to the vehicle power
source is extremely important. Hazards associated with improper wiring can be severe. To avoid
unintentional contact between the wire and any sharp edges, provide the cable with proper bushings and
clamping where it passes through openings. If the wire is subjected to sharp surfaces and excess engine
vibration, the wiring harness insulation can wear away, causing a short between the bare wire and chassis.
This can start a fire.
To avoid any mishaps, all wiring should be routed away from moving parts, high temperature areas and any
contaminants.
When using the supplied in-line fuse holder (which must be used if not connecting to vehicle’s fuse panel):
a.
Ensure the fuse holder contains a 5A UL Listed slow-blow fuse.
b.
Splice the fuse holder to the end of the red V+ wire, as shown above. Make the distance from the fuse to
the power connection point as short as possible.

b.
Black wire and Shield wire: connect to vehicle ground wire or chassis ground.
NOTE
5.
How the cable terminates depends on the vehicle. If the vehicle has a power output connector, then you must
attach a mating connector to the end of the power cable. You may be able to connect to a fuse panel with a
simple blade terminal or commercially available connector. Consult the vehicle Owner’s Manual for information
on how to access the power supply in the vehicle.
Connect the power input cable into the power port on the cradle.
To see if the cradle has power, insert the MC55. The Charging LED on the MC55 blinks slowly to indicate charging

the copy is complete and all data is synchronized, the mobile computer can be disconnect from the host computer.
NOTE
The first ActiveSync operation must be performed with a local, direct connection. Windows Mobile retains
partnerships information after a cold boot.
For more information about using ActiveSync, start ActiveSync on the host computer, then see ActiveSync Help.
Chapter 4 Application Deployment
Introduction
This chapter describes features in Windows Mobile including new security features, how to package applications,
and procedures for deploying applications onto the MC55.
Security
The MC55 implements a set of security policies that determine whether an application is allowed to run and, if
allowed, with what level of trust. To develop an application, you must know the security configuration of the device,
and how to sign an application with the appropriate certificate to allow the application to run (and to run with the
needed level of trust).
Application Security
Application security controls the applications that can run on the MC55.
• Trusted - All applications must be digitally signed by a certificate on the MC55.
• Prompted - User is prompted to allow unsigned applications to run.
• Open - All applications run.
Developers can include their own certificates and provision the device to “trusted.”
Digital Signatures
Digital signatures provide a way to authenticate the author of EXEs, DLLs, and packages. Digitally signed
applications give users confidence that an application comes from where they think it comes from. For example, if
an end-user downloads an update package from the internet that is digitally signed with Motorola's software
certificate, they are assured that the package is authentic and that it was created by Motorola. By enforcing the use
of digital signatures, users can also prevent malicious applications from executing on the MC55. For example,
users can provision the MC55 to only execute “trusted” applications (digitally signed).
Motorola ships all Windows Mobile 6 based products in an “open” state, which means all signed and unsigned
applications should work. However, customers can still reconfigure their MC55 to operate in the “trusted” mode.
4-2
MC75 Integrator Guide
This means that only applications signed with a certificate from the Privileged Execution Trust Certificate Store can
run.
To support the broadest number of deployments, third-party software developers should perform the following
when releasing software for a Windows Mobile 6 devices:
• Sign all their EXEs & DLLs with their private key
• Provide the corresponding public certificate to end-users so that it can be installed into Privileged Execution
Trust Certificate Store.
If the software is installed via a .CAB file, developer should also:
• Sign the .CAB file with their private key
• Provide the corresponding public certificate to end-users so that it can be installed into SPC Certificate Store.
Locking Down a Mobile Computer
Like most configuration options in Windows Mobile, security settings are set via XML provisioning. For example, to
enforce the “trusted” model and only allow applications signed with a privileged certificate to run, use the following
provisioning document:
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type=”SecurityPolicy”>
<!-- Disallow unsigned apps -->
<parm name= “4102” value= “0”/>
<!-- No Prompt -->
<parm name= “4122” value= “1”/>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
For more information on various security options, refer to the Security Policy Settings topic in the latest Windows
Mobile documentation.
Application Deployment
4-3
Installing Certificates
Use XML provisioning to query and delete certificates from certificate stores. To add a new certificate the Privileged
Execution Trust Certificate Store, use the following sample provisioning document:
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type= “CertificateStore”>
<characteristic type= “Privileged Execution Trust Authorities”>
<characteristic type= “657141E12FA45786F6A57CA6464032D4B3A55475”>
<parm name= “EncodedCertificate” value= “
This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text.
This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text.
This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. = “/>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
To create your own provisioning document with real certificate information:
1.
Obtain a certificate from a security provider such as VeriSign.
2.
Double-click on the certificate file (.CER) to open it.
3.
Click on the Details tab and locate the Thumbprint field.
4.
Copy the contents of the Thumbprint field and replace the value in the XML example above.
5.
Click the Copy to File… button.
6.
Click Next to start the Certificate Export Wizard.
7.
Select Base-64 encoded X.509 (.CER) and then click Next.
8.
Set the File Name to CertOutput.xml and click Next.
9.
Click Finish to export the certificate.
10. Open the exported file, CertOutput.xml, in a text editor (i.e., NotePad).
11. Copy the contents of the file (excluding the first line, last line, and CR/LF) and replace the value of the
“EncodedCertificate” parameter in the xml example above.
Device Management Security
You can control access to certain device settings and security levels, such as installing applications and changing
security settings. Refer to the Windows Mobile Version 6 Help file for information on device management security.
Remote API Security
The Remote API (RAPI) enables applications that run on a desktop to perform actions on a remote device. RAPI
provides the ability to manipulate the file system on the remote device, including the creation and deletion of files
and directories. By default, Motorola ships with RAPI in the restricted mode. Certain tools, such as RAPIConfig,
4-4
MC75 Integrator Guide
may not work properly. Refer to the Windows Mobile Version 6 Help file for finding information on Remote API
security policies.
Packaging
NOTE
Applications compiled for Windows Mobile 6 are not backward-compatible with previous versions.
Packaging combines an application's executable files into a single file, called a package. This makes it easier to
deploy and install an application to the MC55. Package new applications and updates, such as new DLL files, as
CAB files, then deploy them to devices. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file for information on CAB
files.
Deployment
To install applications onto the MC55, developers package the application and all required files into a CAB file, then
load the file onto the MC55 using one of the following options:
• Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 or higher
• Storage Card
• MSP 3.2
• AirBEAM
• Image Loader Image (for updating the operating system).
Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file for information on CAB files.
Installation Using ActiveSync
To install an application package:
• Connect the MC55 to a host computer using ActiveSync. See Chapter 3, ActiveSync for more information.
• Locate the package file on the host computer.
• In ActiveSync on the host computer, open Explorer for the MC55.
• Copy the CAB file from the host computer to the \temp directory on the MC55.
• On the MC55, navigate to the \temp directory.
• Tap on the application CAB file. The application installs on the MC55.
Installation Using Storage Card
To install an application package:
• Copy the package CAB file to a microSD storage card using an appropriate storage card reader.
• Install the storage card into the MC55. See Installing a microSD Card on page 1-2 for more information.
• On the MC55, open File Explorer.
Application Deployment
4-5
• Open the Storage Card directory.
• Tap the package CAB file. The application installs on the MC55.
Installation Using AirBEAM
The AirBEAM Smart Client provides backward-compatible legacy AirBEAM functionality and backward-compatible
legacy MSP 2.x Level 2 Agent functionality.
Refer to the AirBEAM Smart Windows CE Client Product Reference Guide, p/n 72-63060-xx, for instructions for
AirBEAM Smart client.
MSP 3.2
The MSP 3 Client Software is a set of software components that come pre-installed on the MC55. The MSP 3
Client software consists of the following components:
The RD Client provides support for MSP 3 Staging functionality, provides support for the MSP 3 Legacy Staging
process, and provides support for backward-compatible legacy MSP 2.x Legacy Staging functionality.
The MSP 3 Agent provides MSP 3 Provisioning functionality and Control functionality when used with MSP 3.2
Control Edition.
Refer to the Mobility Services Platform 3.2 User’s Guide, p/n 72E-100158-xx, for instructions for using the Rapid
Deployment and MSP3 Agent clients.
Update Loader Image
Windows Mobile contains an Image Update feature that updates all operating system components. All updates are
distributed as update packages. Update packages can contain either partial or complete updates for the operating
system. Motorola distributes the update packages on the Support Central Web Site,
http://www.motorola.com/enterprisemobility/support.
To update an operating system component, copy the update package to the MC55 using one of a variety of
transports, including ActiveSync, an microSD card, AirBEAM or MSP. See Chapter 5, Staging and Provisioning for
information on loading an update package using MSP or AirBEAM.

microSD Card
To install an update loader package using a microSD card:
1.
Copy all the update loader package files to the root directory of a microSD card.
2.
Install the microSD card into the MC55. See Installing a microSD Card on page 1-2 for installation instructions.
3.
Connect the MC55 to AC power. See Chapter 2, Accessories.
4.
Perform a cold boot.
5.
Immediately, as soon as the device starts to boot and before the splash screen is visible, press and hold the
left scan button.
6.
The Update Loader application looks for the update loader file in the root directory of the microSD card.
When it finds the file, it loads the update loader package onto the MC55. A progress bar displays until the
update completes.
7.
The MC55 re-boots.
8.
The calibration screen appears.
Creating a Splash Screen
Use a bitmap file to create a customized splash screens for the MC55. Use Image Update with a bitmap file, rather
than a package file, to update the splash screen.
To create a custom splash screen:
1.
Create a .bmp file using a graphic program with the following specifications:
• Size: 296 x 240.
• Colors: 16 bits per pixel (65536 colors) for color displays.
2.
Modify the bitmap file and save.
To load the splash screen on the MC55:
1.
Create a text file named pkgs.lst which contains the name of the bmp file. For example, mysplash.bmp.
2.
Copy the bmp file and the pkgs.lst file to one of the following:
• SD card root directory
• MC55’s \temp directory
• MC55’s \Windows directory.
3.
If using a microSD card, insert the microSD card into the MC55.
4.
Perform a cold boot.
Application Deployment
5.
4-7
Immediately, as soon as the device starts to boot and before the splash screen is visible, press and hold the
left scan button.
XML Provisioning
To configure the settings on an MC55, use XML provisioning. To install an XML provisioning file on the MC55,
create a Cabinet Provisioning File (CPF). A CPF file is similar to a CAB file and contains just one file: _setup.xml.
Like a CAB file, the CPF extension is associated with WCELoad.EXE. Opening a CPF extracts the XML code and
uses it to provision and configure the MC55. The user receives an e-mail notification indicating success or failure.
XML provisioning provides the ability to configure various features of the MC55 (i.e., registry and file system).
However, some settings require security privileges. To change registry settings via a CPF file, you must have
certain privileges (roles). Some registry keys require you to simply be an Authenticated User, while other registry
keys require you to be a Manager. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file, Metabase Settings for
Registry Configuration Service Provider section, for the default role settings in Windows Mobile 6.
For those registry settings that require the Manager role, the CPF file must be signed with a privileged certificate
installed on the device. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file and the Windows Mobile 6 SDK for
instructions and sample test certificates.
Creating an XML Provisioning File
To create a .cpf file:
1.
Create a valid provisioning XML file named _setup.xml using an XML editor or the tools supplied with Visual
Studio 2005. (For example, use the SampleReg.xml sample created in the RegMerge on page 4-8 section and
rename it _setup.xml.) Ensure the file contains the required parameters for the operation. Refer to the
Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file for information.
2.
In the Windows Mobile 6 tools directory on the desktop computer (typically \Program Files\Windows CE
Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 6 Pocket PC SDK\Tools), run the Makecab.exe utility, using the following
syntax to create a .cpf file from the _setup.xml file:
MakeCab.exe /D COMPRESS=OFF _setup.xml myOutCpf
NOTE
COMPRESS=OFF is required for backward compatibility with Pocket PC.
3.
Optionally, use the Authenticode tools to sign the .cpf file.
4.
Tap the filename to install.
5.
Certain applications and settings require a cold boot to take affect. In these cases, cold boot the MC55. Refer
to the Windows Mobile Version 6 Help file for more information.
XML Provisioning vs. RegMerge and Copy File
Prior to Windows Mobile 5.0, Motorola used two drivers (RegMerge and CopyFiles) to update the registry and to
copy files during a cold boot. With Windows Mobile 6, Motorola recommends using XML provisioning instead.
RegMerge and CopyFiles are supported for backward compatibility but Motorola may eliminate support in the
future. The following sections provide examples of how RegMerge and CopyFiles were used, and how to perform
the same function using XML provisioning.
4-8
MC75 Integrator Guide
RegMerge
RegMerge.dll is a built-in driver that allows updating the registry during a clean boot. RegMerge runs very early in
the boot process and looks for registry files (.reg files) in certain Flash File System folders (i.e., \Application) during
a clean boot. It then merges the registry changes into the system registry located in RAM.
The following example uses RegMerge to set a registry key:
SampleReg.reg
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Hardware\DeviceMap\Backlight]
“BacklightIntensity”=dword:00000036
The following example uses XML provisioning to perform the same task:
SampleReg.xml
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type= “Registry”>
<characteristic type= “HKLM\Hardware\DeviceMap\Backlight”>
<parm name= “BacklightIntensity” value= “54” datatype= “integer” />
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
CopyFiles
CopyFiles copies files from one folder to another on a clean boot. During a clean boot CopyFiles looks for files with
a .CPY extension in the root of the Application FFS partition. These files are text files containing the source and
destination for the desired files to copy, separated by “>”.
The following example uses CopyFiles to copy a file from the \Application folder to the \Windows folder:
SampleCpy.cpy
\Application\example.txt > \Windows\example.txt
The following example uses XML provisioning to perform the same task:
Application Deployment
4-9
SampleCpy.xml
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type= “FileOperation”>
<characteristic type= “\Windows” translation= “filesystem”>
<characteristic type= “MakeDir”/>
<characteristic type= “example.txt” translation= “fileystem”>
<characteristic type= “Copy”>
<parm name= “Source” value= “\Application\example.txt” translation= “filesystem”/>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
Storage
Mobile 6 contains three types of file storage:
• Random Access Memory (RAM)
• Persistent Storage
• Application folder.
Random Access Memory
Executing programs use RAM to store data. Data stored in RAM is lost upon a warm boot. RAM also included a
volatile file storage area called Cache Disk.
Volatile File Storage (Cache Disk)
Windows Mobile 6 memory architecture uses persistent storage for all files, registry settings, and database objects
to ensure data is retained even after a power failure. Persistent storage is implemented using Flash memory
technology which is generally slower than volatile RAM memory. In certain situations the speed of the operation is
more important than the integrity of the data. For these situations, Motorola has provided a small volatile File
Storage volume, accessed as the Cache Disk folder. Disk operations to the Cache Disk folder are much faster than
to any of the persistent storage volumes, but data is lost across warm boots and power interruptions. Note that a
backup battery powers RAM memory, including the Cache Disk, when you remove the main battery for a short
period of time.
The MC55 uses the Cache Disk for temporary data that can be restored from other sources, for example, for
temporarily “caching” HTML web pages by a browser or generating formatted files to send to a printer. Both
situations benefit from the increased speed of the cache disk, but you can restore the data if needed.
DO NOT use the Cache Disk as a method to improve application performance. Analyze applications that perform
slower in persistent storage to optimize disk access. Common areas for optimization include minimizing the
number of reads and writes to a file, removing unneeded debug logging, and minimizing file flushing or closing
files.
4 - 10 MC75 Integrator Guide
Persistent Storage
Windows Mobile 6 protects all data and applications from power-related loss. Because Windows Mobile 6 mounts
the entire file system and registry in persistent storage (rather than using RAM), MC55 devices provide a reliable
storage platform even in the absence of battery power.
Persistent storage provides application developers with a reliable storage system available through the standard
file system and registry APIs. Persistent storage is optimized for large reads and writes; therefore, applications
reading and writing data in large chunks tend to outperform those applications reading and writing small blocks of
data. Data in persistent storage is lost upon a clean boot.
Persistent storage contains all the directories under the root directory except for Application, Cache Disk, and
Storage Card (if a storage card is installed). Persistent storage is approximately 60 MB (formatted).
Application Folder
The Application folder is a super-persistent storage that is persistent even after a clean boot. Accessing data in the
Application folder is slower than accessing persistent storage. The Application folder is used for deployment and
device-unique data. For example, network profiles can be stored in the Application folder so that connection to the
network is available after a cold boot. The Application folder is approximately 20 MB (formatted).
Enterprise Mobility Developer Kits
The Motorola Enterprise Mobility Developer Kit (EMDK) family of products allows you to write applications that take
advantage of the capture, move and manage capabilities of the MC55. Go to the Support Central
(http://www.motorola.com/enterprisemobility/support) to download the appropriate developer kit.
Chapter 5 Wireless Applications
Introduction
Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) allow mobile computers to communicate wirelessly and send captured
data to a host device in real time. Before using the MC55 on a WLAN, the facility must be set up with the required
hardware to run the wireless LAN and the MC55 must be configured. Refer to the documentation provided with the
access points (APs) for instructions on setting up the hardware.
802.11d is enabled by default. When enabled, the AP must be configured the same in order to connect.
To configure the MC55, a set of wireless applications provide the tools to configure and test the wireless radio in
the MC55. Refer to the Wireless Fusion Enterprise Mobility Suite User Guide for Version X.XX for information on
configuring wireless profiles; where X.XX is the Fusion version. Goto
http://www.motorola.com/enterprisemobility/manuals for the latest version of this guide. See Fusion Software on
page xiii to determine the Fusion version on the MC55.

Chapter 6 MC5574 - GSM Configuration
Introduction
This chapter explains how to verify MC5574 service on an Global System for Mobile communications (GSM)
wireless network and establish settings.
GSM networks deliver mobile voice and data services, such as Short Message Service (SMS)/Text Messaging,
with full roaming capabilities across the world. GPRS enabled networks offer Internet-based content and
packet-based data services. This enables services such as internet browsing, e-mail on the move, powerful visual
communications, multimedia messages, and location-based services.
When using the MC55 as a phone, services can include speed dialing, call tracking, voice mail, call forwarding,
conference calling, and caller ID, depending on the type of service.
Also use the integrated phone as a modem to connect the MC55 to an ISP or work network. The GSM enabled
MC55 can connect to the Internet or work network using Cellular Line, or using the modem specified by the mobile
phone service provider.
NOTE
Before using an MC55 on a wireless network, first select a provider, establish a voice and data-enabled service
plan, and configure the MC55 (where applicable). Refer to the MC55 User Guide for information on how to use

• Improper battery use may result in a fire, explosion, or other hazard.
• To charge the mobile device battery, the battery and charger temperatures must be between +32 ºF and
+104 ºF (0 ºC and +40 ºC)
• Do not use incompatible batteries and chargers. Use of an incompatible battery or charger may present a risk
of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard. If you have any questions about the compatibility of a battery or a
charger, contact Motorola Enterprise Mobility support.
• To enable authentication of an approved battery, as required by IEEE1725 clause 10.2.1, all batteries will
carry a Motorola hologram. Do not fit any battery without checking it has the Motorola authentication
hologram.
• Do not disassemble or open, crush, bend or deform, puncture, or shred.
• Severe impact from dropping any battery-operated device on a hard surface could cause the battery to
overheat.
• Do not short circuit a battery or allow metallic or conductive objects to contact the battery terminals.
• Do not modify or remanufacture, attempt to insert foreign objects into the battery, immerse or expose to water
or other liquids, or expose to fire, explosion, or other hazard.
• Do not leave or store the equipment in or near areas that might get very hot, such as in a parked vehicle or
near a radiator or other heat source. Do not place battery into a microwave oven or dryer.
• Battery usage by children should be supervised.
• Please follow local regulations to properly dispose of used re-chargeable batteries.
• Do not dispose of batteries in fire.
• In the event of a battery leak, do not allow the liquid to come in contact with the skin or eyes. If contact has
been made, wash the affected area with large amounts of water and seek medical advice.

UDP is an alternate transport that does not guarantee delivery. It is widely used for real-time voice and video
transmissions where erroneous packets are not retransmitted. IP provides the routing mechanism. TCP/IP is a routable
protocol, which means that all messages contain not only the address of the destination station, but the address of a
destination network. This allows TCP/IP messages to be sent to multiple networks within an organization or around the
world, hence its use in the worldwide Internet. Every client and server in a TCP/IP network requires an IP address, which
is either permanently assigned or dynamically assigned at startup.
Telnet. A terminal emulation protocol commonly used on the Internet and TCP/IP-based networks. It allows a user at a
terminal or computer to log onto a remote device and run a program.
