Description

Connecting Android devices to a Zebra Bluetooth enabled printer.
Android Bluetooth communications

Applies To

All Zebra Bluetooth enabled printers.
Excludes: ZQ110, EM220, EM220II  

Requirements

A pin needs to be set on the printer using Zebra Setup Utilities before attempting to pair the printer with the Android device.  This does require an initial USB connection to a Windows PC.  You can also set a friendly name if needed. If no friendly name is set for the printer, it will display using its serial number as the device name.  Read More>>

Note:  Link-OS printers do not require a pin to be set before pairing as they will generate a pin upon the master device's attempt to pair with the unit which then needs to be verified on each device.  Link-OS printers include, but are not limited to: QLn Series Mobile Printers and iMZ Series Mobile Printers.  Read More>>
