The reason that it launches the phone in the case you mention, WorkMobile, is because DataWedge acts just like keyboard input. It basically looks to the whole device like has just gotten data from the keypad. So, what happens when you're not in any program and you start pressing numbers? It pops up the phone application thinking you must want to call someone. So scanning in a numeric barcode does the same thing. If the barcode doesn't contain numerics then it wouldn't do that.

You need to be in an application first. For example, launch mobile Excel and make sure your cursor is in a cell. When you scan, it will enter into that cell. Just make sure the cursor is in the cell you are trying to get the info into before you scan (If it's not working, the app you're running may not be compatible with the scanning function, but I've never seen this).

Oddly enough, from what I've seen, if you just scan something without having an app launch, I've seen the MC70 default to the phone function and try to dial the number scanned.

Hello,
there are several ways to use the scanner: you can have an application directly with scanner drivers implemented. Or you can install the application DataWedge provided by the manufacturer.
The DataWedge application will activate the scanner and the decoded barcode is sent as usual keypad input to the system. The application is running in background, so you can have your favourite simple application in foreground and scan data directly.
To download the DataWedge application please go to support.symbol.com website and search for DataWedge, or use this direct link http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=12685

Hello, I am with Motorola and have a MC5590. The scanner function does not appear to be working. I have version 6.5. Do you have an instruction set that can test the functionality of the scanner? Thank...


Hello Glenn,
to test the scanner I would suggest to download and install the Datawedge application. It is an desktop installation. As you will connect your MC55 to the Desktop per Active Sync the application will be installed also to your MC55.

The DataWedge aplication will activate the scanner and the decoded barcode is sent as usual keypad input to the system. The application is running in background, if you scan a barcode a pop-up window will come up. Or if another application is running it will send the input to the application.

Hello, Datamatrix is 2D Symbology. Actually this MC55 is a model with 1D Laser Scan engine. The laser cant scan 2D barcodes, therefore he is not decoding the datamatrix barcode.
You would need an MC55 with an 2D Imager or with Camera to scan 2D Barcodes.

DataWedge is an Application provided by Symbol/Motorola to enable the scanning module also for application without the driver. Scanned barcode is sent like an usual keyboard input.
There can be just one active application using the barcode scanner. If you are running DataWedge, you would need to stop it before starting any other application with built-in scanner drivers.
To stop DataWedge just click on the barcode icon in a right down corner and select - Disable DataWedge
