    Posted by d-stroebel on February 15, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    We are looking for a bar code reader that will work with Mitchell for scanning VIN bar codes. This should give us accurate vehicle information quickley.Anyone have or know of a source for this?

    Thanks,

    Dale

    We have been using one for years. Any barcode scanner will work, but

    the one that worked best for us was a bluetooth scanner. Just put the

    cursor in the correct field and scan, or you can open notepad and

    scan multiple, then cut and paste.

    Symbol technologies makes an excellent Bluetooth scanner.

    Symbol LS4278 is a very nice model.

    Quality is good

    Range is good

    Takes a little to get it setup but then it’s as easy as typing it into the box in Mitchell.
