Expanded Portfolio MOTOTRBO No
Longer Transmits Data Gathered By Bluetooth


Question

After I updated my MOTOTRBO Expanded Portfolio subscriber to firmware release,
the radio no longer transmits the raw data received from my connected Bluetooth
accessory to another radio.

Why is this?


Answer

The ability for the MOTOTRBO Expanded Portfolio subscriber to transmit data
received from a connected Bluetooth accessory to a remote radio was provided free of
charge for the following Expanded Portfolio firmware releases as a trial period:


-

R02.
00.00

-

R02.00.01

-

R02.00.02

-

R02.00.03


Subsequent firmware releases require an Entitlement ID (EID) to unlock this feature
("Data Services Via Bluetooth").

Contact MOTOTRBO Customer Service to register
your subscriber for feature activation, and to ob
tain an EID.


The MOTOTRBO Expanded Portfolio subscriber continues to support the direct
exchange of data between itself and a connected Bluetooth device (such as a barcode
scanner or PC) by default.

This functionality does not require an EID to be enable
d.

EP MOTOTRBO Subscriber &

An MCD


Question

Can I pair an Expanded Portfolio MOTOTRBO subscriber to a Motorola / Symbol
mobile computing device
(MCD) using Bluetooth?



Answer

If your Expanded Portfolio MOTOTRBO subscriber is equipped with Bluetooth
capabilities, then the radio may pair with a Motorola / Symbol Mobile Computing
Device using the following Bluetooth data profiles:


-

Serial Port Pro
file (SPP)

-

Personal Area Network (PAN)


Please note that the SPP is supported in MOTOTRBO firmware release R2.0.

PAN
profile support is introduced in R2.0.5.


The MCD is loaded with two Bluetooth stacks: the Microsoft stack (which is enabled by
default)
, and the Stonestreet stack.

Both stacks support the SPP.

However only the
Stonestreet stack supports the PAN profile.



NOTE:


The MCD's user guides indicate that the Microsoft stack supports Bluetooth
PAN profile.

However that information is

incorrect
.

Symbol mobile computing device, please refer to

The Windows registry on the
MCD must be updated to change the default Bluetooth stack.


Perform the following steps to configure the Stonestr
eet Bluetooth stack as the default
stack on the Motorola / Symbol MCD:


1.

Obtain a registry editor for editing the Windows registry on the MCD.

One editor is
CeRegEditor, a free registry editor for devices running WindowsCE, PocketPC2003
and Windows Mob
ile 5 & 6.

Connectibility


The Microsoft Bluetooth stack allows a user to successfully pair a Blueto
oth SPP
device to the MCD.

However the Microsoft stack requires an application to create a
Bluetooth connection between the device and the MCD.

If no such application is
available on the MCD, a Bluetooth connection cannot be made.


The Stonestreet One Bl
uetooth stack allows a user to successfully pair a Bluetooth
SPP, PAN or HSP device to the MCD.

A connection between the Bluetooth device
and the MCD can be established using the MCD's operating system configurations.

Bluetooth connectivity does not requ
ire an application with the Stonestreet stack.


The Stonestreet stack may be preferable for use in a development environment for
MCD
-
based applications using the SPP.

Refer to the MOTOTRBO Bluetooth ADK Development Guide for more information on
the
Bluetooth capabilities of the Expanded Portfolio MOTOTRBO subscriber.

Connecting to Motorola / Symbol Mobile Computing Device (MCD)
Using Personal
Area Network (PAN) Profile


Question

How do I pair & connect my Expanded Portfolio MOTOTRBO subscriber to a Motorola
/ Symbol Mobile Computing Device (MCD) for the Bluetooth PAN profile?


Answer

Please note that the Expanded Portfolio MOTOTRBO subscriber s
upports the
Bluetooth PAN profile starting with the R02.0.5 firmware release.

Prior firmware
releases do not support PAN.


The MCD must be using the Stonestreet One stack as the default Bluetooth stack, and
not the Microsoft Bluetooth stack.

Refer to

ANSWER 1266

for instructions on how to
configure Stonestreet as the default Bluetooth stack on your Mobile Computing
Device.


Perform the following steps to connect

your MOTOTRBO Expanded Portfolio
subscriber to the MCD for Bluetooth PAN.


1.

Place the MOTOTRBO Expanded Portfolio radio into Bluetooth discoverable mode.

Press the "Menu" button and select "Bluetooth
-
>Find Me".


2.

On the MCD, go to "Start
-
>Programs
-
>BTProfileSelector".

a)

Select the PAN profile, click "Apply".


b) Close the BTProfileSelector program.


3.

On the MCD, go to "Start
-
>Programs
-
>BTExplorer" to search for remote devices.

a) Select "File
-
>New Connection"

b) Under the drop
-
down menu, select

"Pair with Remote Device".

Click "Next" to begin
inquiry or display device list.

If the device list is present, you may click in the open
space and select "Discover Devices" from the menu.

c) Select the radio name (e.g. "Motorola") from the device list.


Click "Next".

d) Enter PIN (e.g. "0000").

Click "Finish" after pairing is completed.


4.

While still in BTExplorer, go to "File
-
>New Connection"

a) Select "Explore Services on Remote Devices" from drop
-
down list.

Click "Next".

b) Select the radio name

(e.g. "Motorola") from the device list.

Click "Next".

c)

Select "Personal Area Networking" (PAN) Service.

Click "Next".

Then click
"Connect".


5.

Verify the connection with the MOTOTRBO Expanded Portfolio radio by pinging the
radio's Bluetooth IP add
ress (e.g. 192.168.11.1).

This can be done through the
Windows Mobile command prompt (cmd).

If the command prompt is not available,
Microsoft offers a free download for the Windows Mobile Network Analyzer PowerToy
tool that supports ping operations.


The

above procedure is validated for the MC9090 CR using Windows CE version 5.00.


Refer to the MOTOTRBO Bluetooth ADK Development Guide for more information on

Pairing to a Motorola / Symbol Mobile Computing Device (MCD)
Using The Microsoft Stack & SPP


Question

How do I pair my MOTOTRBO Expanded Portfolio subscriber to a
Motorola / Symbol
Mobile Computing Device (MCD) using the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP)?


Answer

Perform the following steps to pair the Expanded Portfolio MOTOTRBO subscriber to
the Motorola / Symbol MCD:


1.

Put the MOTOTRBO radio into discoverabl
e mode.


2.

From the MCD's Windows Mobile "Start" menu, select "Settings
-
>Connections
-
>Bluetooth".


3.

From the "Devices" menu, select "Add New Device" or "Add" to begin device
inquiry.


4.

In the search results, select the name of the MOTOTRBO radio (e
.g. "Motorola")
and click "Next" to begin pairing.


5.

From the "Enter Passcode" menu, enter any passcode (e.g. "0000") and click
"Next".

The MOTOTRBO radio will then display a prompt to enter the same passcode.


6.

Enter the passcode into the MOTOTRBO
radio.

A "pairing complete" message
appears on the MOTOTRBO radio display, and a success tone will play when
successful.


Please note that Bluetooth connections using the Microsoft stack are application
dependent.

Once you successfully pair a Bluetooth d
evice to the MCD, a MCD
-
based
software application is required to connect to the paired device.


Refer to the MOTOTRBO Bluetooth ADK Development Guide for more information on
the Bluetooth capabilities of the Expanded Portfolio MOTOTRBO subscriber.
