Any or all of these scanners can be used individually or simultaneously.
The IOS app is free, automatically uploads laps and can be installed on any number of iPhones/iPads or iPod Touches.
The app provides instant feedback on the runners lap count and prevents duplicate scans.
If your program only uses the app to scan consider changing over to the QR tags for even faster scanning.
The Motorola's are fast easy to use and can store days of lap scans. The downsides are there is no lap count feedback and they need to be connected to a computer to uploaded the laps.
The CS3000 and CS3070 can only scan barcodes.
The Motorola CS3070 is basically the CS3000 with Bluetooth. Bluetooth is not a requirement for this program and you can save some money by getting the CS3000.
Our recommendation if you do want a Motorola is to purchase the CS4070. This unit has the advantage of scanning barcodes and QR codes.
At this time we do not have any plans to support the Android platform.
Sorry, we know this is a total pain... but if you have Android users that want to help, you can purchase a Motorola scanner or as many schools have done is request unused iPhones that are 6s or higher from the community. Even better see if they might volunteer to help you do the scanning. Many schools have also contacted local hospitals and businesses to help support their program.
If you know of a low cost, scanner that captures the date, time and barcode let us know we might be able to add it to the list.
