Is there a Registry Setting to keep a Gobi 3000 radio always on?

I'm working with a Honeywell 99ex handheld running Win Mobile 6.5.3.  We have a data connection to Verizon for the delivery application we are developing.  Data is sent periodically after each stop.  The issue is, when the 99ex suspends from inactivity and the user turns it back on, the radio is disconnected from Verizon and it takes from 30 sec to 1 min to reconnect. 

I know there are some power management APIs that can keep the 99ex from suspending, but my question is, is there a simple registry setting (or some other setting) to keep the radio on always?

Hello,

There are module APIs to control the connectivity of the radio (StartDataSession or SetEnhancedAutoconnect) and to control the power state of the radio (SetPower).  These are used by the host device to control the radio state.  There is also Windows functionality called Selective Suspend which automatically powers-down the USB interface to the radio letting the radio go into a low power mode.

The problem is that there is no easy solution for this issue from a module perspective.  The power state of the radio is controlled by the host, so it is up to the Honeywell handheld to control the radio state.  You will need to discuss this with Honeywell to see if there is a host configuration that will meet your requirements.

Regards, Alan

Alan,

Thanks for a prompt reply. I didn't think there was an easy setting to do this, but thought I'd throw it out there. I'll pursue some ot the APIs and get it working.

Hi Scott,

Best of luck and let me know if you have any other questions on the APIs.

Cheers, Alan
