Compatible devices

In the last more than 10 years, we have tested plenty of devices. Those are listed below. Other devices with the listed OS will most probably work with MobileNAV, but they might need a little tweak in the settings. Thus, if you want to be sure that MobileNAV will run properly on your existing devices, you can always send them to us for trial.

Please note that MultiSoft does not sell hardware, so we cannot provide devices for you. However, we have a few proven partners who can do so.

Commercial mobile devices

MobileNAV works on almost every commercial mobile device and tablet, including all the big brands. They are the go-to choices for using MobileNAV for field sales or field service. However, for industrial use, they don’t always work as well.

Windows based barcode readers

  • Built-in barcode scanner running on Windows CE
 

These scanners are normally having a built-in laser barcode reader
or area-imager, they are ruggedized, and they are running on Windows CE (or Windows Mobile or Embedded Handheld). 
We support all vendors here. The only restriction is to run on Windows CE 5 or 6. We do not support CE 7. Some of the vendors are already integrated with their barcode scanning SDK, which means that if you install the MobileNAV app, it will just work out of the box.

These vendors are: 

  • Intermec
  • Motorola/Symbol
  • DataLogic
  • Psion
  • Delphi
  • M3
  • Casio
  • CipherLab
  • Ingenico 
  • and CHD, but we integrate new vendors from time to time
    (upon partner request as well).

Other vendors can be used in “character mode” or “keyboard emulation” mode. For some models, we were also able to test ourselves in the test-house.

Handheld scanners:

Handheld scanners are a great choice if you are looking to use your MobileNAv in the warehouse. This category includes vehicle-mounted computers as well.

Android based barcode readers

There are a couple of special Android devices, called “Touch computers”, which has built-in scanners, and they are a bit ruggedized to use them in warehouse for example.

External barcode readers with SocketMobile

We also support SocketMobile devices.

These are external barcode readers for Android and iOS. They have small holdable devices, and also attachable ones.

Barcode reading with keyboard emulation (HID) mode

Most of the built-in or external scanners do support keyboard emulation mode, which means, that when you scan a barcode, the barcode characters will be sent like you have just typed in via the keyboard. 

MobileNAV supports keyboard emulation mode, if none of the above options suitable for your scanner. You just need to make sure that keyboard emulation is enabled on your scanner, and then execute the keyboard emulation mode configuration wizard in MobileNAV.

 

You can find the predefined barcodes for the configuration wizard here.

Barcode reader cradle for iOS devices

For iPhone, we support the Linea Pro or Infinea products. 

These are basically cradles for iOS devices, and as a result, you will have “one” unit with barcode scanning enabled.

Barcode reading with camera integration

This is not the most optimal way of scanning barcodes, since it depends on the light conditions, and the quality of the barcode, but it works.
