Setting up the Zebra TCx

  • Zebra TC57 is an Android device. For more information, please see TC57 Touch Computer User Guide.
  • It can be turned on through the power button on top of it. After connecting it with HD4000 we can use it as a computing unit for the smartglasses. We will use the HD4000 Services app to mirror the screen onto the HD4000
  • The app can be downloaded from the Zebra website. The zip file contains the APK. You need to unzip it and copy the APK on TCx and then install it. Install HD4000_Firmware_Updater as well along with HD4000_Service
  • To mirror the screen onto the smartglass HD4000, you need to run the HD4000 Services app and select mirroring. Also, make sure the Microphone is enabled on HD4000 Services app. This will enable the display on glass and also its microphone. This app needs to be turned on every time before every time you start Frontline and then it can be minimized and kept running in the background
  • Adjust the display of the smartglasses to view it entirely, sometimes it feels that the display isn't working but you need to adjust it
