Data Capture
The MC55 offers three types of data capture options:
• Linear scanning
• Imaging
• Digital camera.
NOTE
To perform data capture a scanning enabled application must be installed on the MC55. A sample scanning
application can be downloaded from the Motorola Support site at http://support.symbol.com.
Linear Scanning
MC55 with an integrated linear scanner have the following features:
• Reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal, and 1-D code types.
• Intuitive aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.
Imaging
MC55 with an integrated imager have the following features:
• Omnidirectional reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal,
PDF417, and 2D matrix code types.
• The ability to capture and download images to a host for a variety of imaging applications.
• Advanced intuitive laser aiming cross-hair and dot aiming) for easy point-and-shoot operation.
The imager uses digital camera technology to take a digital picture of a bar code, stores the resulting image in its
memory, and executes state-of-the-art software decoding algorithms to extract the data from the image.
Operational Modes
MC55 with an integrated imager support three modes of operation, listed below. Activate each mode by pressing
the Scan button.
• Decode Mode: In this mode, the MC55 attempts to locate and decode enabled bar codes within its field of
view. The imager remains in this mode as long as you hold the scan button, or until it decodes a bar code.
NOTE
To enable Pick List Mode, download the Control Panel applet from the Support Central web site at
http://support.symbol.com. Pick List can also be set in an application using a API command.
• Pick List Mode: This mode allows you to selectively decode a bar code when more than one bar code is in
the MC55’s field of view. To accomplish this, move the aiming crosshair or dot over the required bar code to
decode only this bar code. This feature is ideal for pick lists containing multiple bar codes and manufacturing
or transport labels containing more than one bar code type (either 1D or 2D).
• Image Capture Mode: Use this mode to capture an image within the MC55’s field of view. This is useful for
capturing signatures or images of items like damaged boxes.
2 - 36 MC55 User Guide
Digital Camera
MC55 with an integrated digital camera have the following features:
• Omnidirectional reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal,
PDF417, and 2D matrix code types.
• Advanced intuitive aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.
The camera uses digital camera technology to take a digital picture of a bar code, stores the resulting image in its
memory, and executes state-of-the-art software decoding algorithms to extract the data from the image.
Scanning Considerations
Typically, scanning is a simple matter of aim, scan, and decode and a few quick trial efforts master it. However,
consider the following to optimize scanning performance:
• Range
Any scanning device decodes well over a particular working range — minimum and maximum distances from
the bar code. This range varies according to bar code density and scanning device optics.
Scanning within range brings quick and constant decodes; scanning too close or too far away prevents
decodes. Move the scanner closer and further away to find the right working range for the bar codes being
scanned.
• Angle
Scanning angle is important for promoting quick decodes. When laser beams reflect directly back into the
scanner from the bar code, this specular reflection can “blind” the scanner.
To avoid this, scan the bar code so that the beam does not bounce directly back. But don’t scan at too sharp
an angle; the scanner needs to collect scattered reflections from the scan to make a successful decode.
Practice quickly shows what tolerances to work within.
• Hold the MC55 farther away for larger symbols.
• Move the MC55 closer for symbols with bars that are close together.
NOTE
Scanning procedures depend on the application and MC55 configuration. An application may use different
scanning procedures from the one listed above.
Linear Scanning
1.
Ensure that a scan enabled application is loaded on the MC55.
2.
Aim the scan window at the bar code.

Chapter 3 Using GPS Navigation
Introduction
NOTE
Only available on MC5574.
The MC55 includes Global Positioning System (GPS) technology using the SiRF III chipset. GPS technology is
based on a worldwide system of GPS satellites orbiting the earth that continuously transmit digital radio signals.
These radio signals contain data on the satellites’ locations and their exact clock time and are used to determine
your location on the earth.
WARNING!
When using the MC55 in a vehicle, it is the user’s responsibility to place, secure and use in a
manner that will not cause accidents, personal injury or property damage or obstruct their view. It
is the responsibility of the driver to operate the vehicle in a safe manner, maintain observation of
all driving conditions at all times, and not become distracted by the device to the exclusion of safe
driving practices. It is unsafe to operate the controls of the device while driving.
Software Installation
Third-party GPS navigation software is required. Evaluation software is available from various suppliers. For
example; VisualGPS, visit: http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPSce/
If interested in purchasing GPS navigation software check with the GPS software vendor (before purchasing,
downloading, or installing any software) to determine that the application is compatible with the MC55. Refer to the
application’s user guide for application installation and setup information.
MC55 GPS Setup
The GPS-enabled MC55 uses Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5.X, so the operating system automatically manages
access to the GPS receiver to allow multiple programs to simultaneously access GPS data.
By default, the MC55 has the following Settings:
1.
Tap Start > Settings > System > External GPS icon.
3-2
MC55 User Guide
2.
In the Programs tab, the GPS program port is set to None.
3.
In the Hardware tab, the GPS hardware port is set to COM8.
To access the GPS receiver from multiple programs simultaneously, the user can either use the Microsoft GPS API
or change the GPS program port setting and access the GPS program port in the multiplexed way.
Operation
Acquiring satellite signals may take a few minutes. It is best to be outside and have a clear, unobstructed view of
the sky. Without a clear view, acquisition takes much longer and could result in the MC55 being unable to compute
the initial position quickly. When operating the device indoors access to the GPS signals may be limited or
unavailable.
NOTE
When using a GPS navigation application, ensure that the MC55 does not go into suspend mode. If the MC55
suspends then the power to the GPS radio is removed. Upon resume the GPS receiver must reacquire a valid GPS
signal, resulting in a a delay of positional information.
GPS Maps on microSD Cards
GPS navigation software vendors may sell maps on microSD cards. If using a microSD card with the GPS
navigation software install the microSD memory card using procedure in Installing a microSD Card on page 1-4.
Answering a Phone Call While Using GPS
If you receive a phone call while using your GPS navigation software:
1.
Answer the phone call by pressing the Answer button.
2.
Once you end the phone call, press the End Call button to resume the audio on the GPS software.
NOTE
Anytime you are using GPS on the MC55 and you receive a phone call, the audio on the GPS navigation software
is muted until you finish the call.
Losing the GPS Signal While in a Vehicle
GPS performance on the MC55 may be affected if the vehicle has thermal glass windows and windshields, which
can block the MC55 from receiving a GPS signal from satellites. To improve GPS signal strength, place the MC55
where there is a clear view of the sky. A direct line of sight is required between the MC55 and the GPS satellites to
access information from the satellites.
Assisted GPS
NOTE
On devices with OEM version 03.38.0004, to configure the MC5574 to obtain GPS data from a SUPL server
see Assisted GPS on page C-18 for more information.
GPS can be used in stand-alone or Assisted GPS (aGPS) modes. A Stand-alone GPS receiver downloads data
directly from GPS satellites. In challenging environments, such as urban canyons and areas where foliage is very
dense, aGPS can be used to improve Time To First Fix (TTTF). By default the MC55 uses the SUPL protocol
which requires the use of third party database/service from a carrier. By using GPS Location servers, A-GPS
dramatically improves the performance of the TTFF of GPS receivers by providing them with data that they would
Using GPS Navigation
3-3
ordinarily have to download from the GPS satellites. With the aGPS data, GPS receivers can operate faster and
more reliably.
Refer to the EMDK Help file for information on setting up SUPL on the MC55.

Smart Dialing
Smart Dialing makes it easy to dial a phone number. When you start entering numbers or characters, Smart Dialing
automatically searches and sorts the contact entries on the SIM card, in Contacts, and the phone numbers in Call
History (including incoming, outgoing, and missed calls). You can then select the desired number or contact from
the filtered list to dial.
Open the Phone screen, then tap the keys on the Phone keypad that correspond to the phone number or contact to
call. The contact panel lists contacts that match the sequence that you entered.
Smart Dialing starts looking for numbers or contacts that match the sequence entered.
To find a phone number:
• Enter the first one or two digits to find a phone number in Call History.
• Enter the first three digits or more to find a phone number from the saved Contacts and SIM card.
4 - 10 MC55 User Guide
To find a contact name:
• Enter the first letter of a contact’s first name or last name. Smart Dialing searches for the letter starting
from the first character of a contact name as well as from the character that appears after a space, dash,
or underscore in a contact name. For example, if you tap number “2” which is associated with [a, b, c] on
the Phone keypad, contact names such as the following will be considered matches: “Smith, Bernard”,
“Adams, John”, “Carlson, Eileen”, “Dillon, Albert”, “Childs, Larry”, “Cooper, Robert” and “Parks, Celine”.
• If the matching list is long narrow down the search further by entering another letter. Using the same
example above, tap “3” which is associated with (d, e, f), the matching list is narrowed down to the
following names: “Smith, Bernard”, “Adams, John”, and “Parks, Celine”.

Chapter 5 Using Bluetooth
Introduction
Bluetooth-equipped devices can communicate without wires, using frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS)
radio frequency (RF) to transmit and receive data in the 2.4 GHz Industry Scientific and Medical (ISM) band
(802.15.1). Bluetooth wireless technology is specifically designed for short-range (30 feet/10 meters)
communication and low power consumption.
MC55s with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information (e.g., files, appointments, and tasks) with other
Bluetooth enabled devices such as phones, printers, access points, and other mobile computers. To use the MC55
as a modem, create a dial-up modem connection between a computer and MC55.
TheMC55 with Bluetooth technology uses either the StoneStreet Bluetooth stack or the Microsoft Bluetooth stack.
To write an application that uses the StoneStreet One Bluetooth stack APIs, refer to the Enterprise Mobility
Developer Kit (EMDK) Help.
Adaptive Frequency Hopping
Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is a method of avoiding fixed frequency interferers, and can be used with
Bluetooth voice. All devices in the piconet (Bluetooth network) must be AFH-capable in order for AFH to work.
There is no AFH when connecting and discovering devices. Avoid making Bluetooth connections and discoveries
during critical 802.11b communications. AFH for Bluetooth consists of four main sections:
• Channel Classification - A method of detecting an interference on a channel-by-channel basis, or pre-defined
channel mask.
• Link Management - Coordinates and distributes the AFH information to the rest of the Bluetooth network.
• Hop Sequence Modification - Avoids interference by selectively reducing the number of hopping channels.
• Channel Maintenance - A method for periodically re-evaluating the channels.
When AFH is enabled, the Bluetooth radio “hops around” (instead of through) the 802.11b high-rate channels. AFH
coexistence allows Motorola mobile computers to operate in any infrastructure.
5-2
MC55 User Guide
The Bluetooth radio in this MC55 operates as a Class 2 device power class. The maximum output power is 2.5mW
and the expected range is 32.8 feet (10 meters). A definition of ranges based on power class is difficult to obtain
due to power and device differences, and whether one measures open space or closed office space.
NOTE
It is not recommended to perform Bluetooth wireless technology inquiry when high rate 802.11b operation is
required.
Security
The current Bluetooth specification defines security at the link level. Application-level security is not specified. This
allows application developers to define security mechanisms tailored to their specific need. Link-level security
occurs between devices, not users, while application-level security can be implemented on a per-user basis. The
Bluetooth specification defines security algorithms and procedures needed to authenticate devices, and if needed,
encrypt the data flowing on the link between the devices. Device authentication is a mandatory feature of Bluetooth
while link encryption is optional.
Pairing of Bluetooth devices is accomplished by creating an initialization key that is used to authenticate the
devices and create a link key for them. Entering a common PIN number in the devices being paired generates the
initialization key. The PIN number is never sent over the air. By default, the Bluetooth stack responds with no key
when a key is requested (it is up to user to respond to the key request event). Authentication of Bluetooth devices
is based-upon a challenge-response transaction. Bluetooth allows for a PIN number or passkey that is used to
create other 128-bit keys used for security and encryption. The encryption key is derived from the link key used to
authenticate the pairing devices. Also worthy of note is the limited range and fast frequency hopping of the
Bluetooth radios that makes long-distance eavesdropping difficult.
Recommendations are:
• Perform pairing in a secure environment
• Keep PIN codes private and don't store the PIN codes in the mobile computer
• Implement application-level security.
The Microsoft stack supports Smart-pairing. For detailed information, refer to the Microsoft MSDN.
Security Mode 3 (Link Level Encryption)
The MC55 supports Security Level 3 (Link Level Encryption). Link level encryption is the data security process of
encrypting information at the data link level as it is transmitted between two devices.
Microsoft Bluetooth Stack
When pairing with a remote device using the Microsoft Bluetooth UI, Security Level 3 (Link Level Encryption) is
automatically used. When developing applications using the Microsoft Bluetooth stack, enable Security Mode 3
using the BthSetEncryption API call. Refer to the Microsoft MSDN for more information.
StoneStreet One Bluetooth Stack
To set Security Mode 3 on outgoing serial port connections, set Encrypt Link On All Outgoing Connections
checkbox in the Settings > Security tab. See Security Tab on page 5-32 for more information.

Appendix B Voice Quality Manager
Introduction
The Voice Quality Manager (VQM) is a software package that resides on the MC55. VQM enables a set of features
for Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) calls, and a sub-set of those features for cellular line calls. The VQM user interface is
designed to be intuitive and easy to use, so complex tasks such as enabling the Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC)
while a call is in progress are done with very little or no user intervention.
Features
The VQM software:
•
Improves the voice transmission quality without using additional battery power.
•
Turns on the AEC for VoWiFi calls automatically, without user intervention.
•
Prioritizes the outgoing audio IP packets.
•
Provides user-selectable audio modes (speakerphone and handset) with a single tap of the VQM icon. A
VQM icon in the title bar of the device indicates the audio mode currently in use.
•
NDIS 5.1 compliant.
Enabling VQM
To enable VQM:
1.
Tap Start > Programs > File Explorer.
2.
Navigate to the Windows folder.
3.
Locate the file VQMAudioNotify.
4.
Tap the filename to enable VQM.

Changing Audio Modes
Depending upon the audio mode being used, the mode can be changed by tapping the VQM icon in the title bar.
The audio mode can only be changed only while the user is on a call.

Using the Interfaces
B-3
If the user is using a Bluetooth headset, tapping the VQM icon un-pairs the Bluetooth headset from the device
causing the audio to be routed to the default mode. In VQM 2.5, there is no way to go back to the Bluetooth
headset using the VQM icon if it is un-paired The only way to reconnect the Bluetooth headset to the device is by
using the BTExplorer application.
If the user taps the VQM icon while not on a call there is not change to the audio mode.
Tap and hold the VQM icon in the title bar to display a notification dialog box that contains:
•
AEC: The Acoustic Echo Canceller status
•
DSCP Marked Packets: The number of outbound voice packets that have been recognized and marked as
high priority by VQM.
•
VQM Version: The VQM version number.
Figure B-2 VQM Audio Control Dialog Box
Voice Packet Prioritization
IP soft phones transmit voice packets in the same manner as any other application that sends data over the
network. On a network with different types of traffic, voice packets are given the same priority as any other traffic,
and therefore may be subject to delays.
WiFi Multi-media (WMM) is a solution to this problem. WMM is a specification that supports prioritizing traffic, and
“higher-priority” packets can be given preferential treatment.
To make use of WMM, the devices that generate traffic must mark their packets as high or normal priority in a field
in the IP packet called Differentiated Services Code-Point (DSCP). The wireless infrastructure, which must be
configured to support WMM, gives a higher priority to packets that have been marked as high priority through
DSCP marking by the devices that generate traffic.
VQM detects if there is an ongoing Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) call, and if so, marks outgoing voice packets (Only
outgoing voice packets can be marked. The incoming voice packets have already been through the network, so it
makes no sense to mark them.) as high-priority using DSCP. This enables WMM-compatible wireless infrastructure
to treat the voice packets preferentially. This results in fewer delays for voice packets, which in turn improves the
call quality.
Limitations
•
There is no VPN support in VQM.
B-4
MC55 User Guide
•
Only the Avaya softphone is currently supported.
Acoustic Echo Cancellation
Acoustic Echo occurs during a voice call when the audio from the earpiece enters the microphone of the same
device. This results in the person at the other end hearing back a delayed version of his/her own voice (“Echo”).
Needless to say, “Echo” is not desirable, and needs to be suppressed. This is the functionality performed by the
Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC). There are two approaches to suppressing the Echo:
•
Turn the Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) on permanently. This approach is not very efficient because the
device consumes more power when the AEC is on.
•
Turn the Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) on only when there is an ongoing call.
VQM follows the second of the two approaches mentioned above.
VQM automatically turns on the Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) when the mobile device is in a VoWiFi call. When
the call is terminated, VQM turns the AEC off. Note that the AEC is turned on for speakerphone and handset
modes and does not get turned on for Bluetooth headset mode. Bluetooth headsets typically have an Echo
Canceller built in. Turning the AEC on only while on a call saves battery power, compared to leaving the AEC
turned on permanently.
The AEC is not turned on for Cellular calls because the WWAN phone application has a built-in echo canceller.
Disabling VQM
To disable VQM perform a warm boot.

Assisted GPS
GPS can be used in stand-alone or Assisted GPS (A-GPS) modes. A Stand-alone GPS receiver downloads data
from GPS satellites. It can take several minutes to get a fix. By using GPS Location servers, A-GPS dramatically
improves the performance of the Time To First Fix (TTFF) of GPS receivers by providing them with data that they
would ordinarily have to download from the GPS satellites and other aiding data that helps the acquisition. With the
A-GPS data, GPS receivers can operate faster and more reliably.
A-GPS follows the Secure User Plane Location (SUPL) protocol which allows the MC55 to communicate with a
location server.

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.

TFTP. (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) A version of the TCP/IP FTP (File Transfer Protocol) protocol that has no directory or
password capability. It is the protocol used for upgrading firmware, downloading software and remote booting of diskless
devices.
Tolerance. Allowable deviation from the nominal bar or space width.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. See TCP/IP.
Trivial File Transfer Protocol. See TFTP.
U
UDP. User Datagram Protocol. A protocol within the IP protocol suite that is used in place of TCP when a reliable delivery
is not required. For example, UDP is used for real-time audio and video traffic where lost packets are simply ignored,
because there is no time to retransmit. If UDP is used and a reliable delivery is required, packet sequence checking and
error notification must be written into the applications.
UPC. Universal Product Code. A relatively complex numeric symbology. Each character consists of two bars and two
spaces, each of which is any of four widths. The standard symbology for retail food packages in the United States.
V
Visible Laser Diode (VLD). A solid state device which produces visible laser light.
W
Warm Boot. A warm boot restarts the mobile computer by closing all running programs. All data that is not saved to flash
memory is lost.
