Setting Up Bluetooth Scanning

  • Best practices for using Bluetooth scanning is to pair your Bluetooth scanner BEFORE enabling Bluetooth scanning in Nextstop. Enabling Bluetooth scanning without a Bluetooth scanner already paired results in the keyboard appearing any time the app is expecting input.

  • To pair a Bluetooth scanner to your mobile device, please refer to your mobile device or Bluetooth scanner's instruction manual on how to pair with an Android or iOS device.

Enabling Bluetooth scanning without a paired Bluetooth scanner will cause the keyboard to display.
