RouteStar Online is compatible with the following series of Zebra Mobile Thermal Printers via Bluetooth for either Android or iOS devices. Both require the use of a 3rd party app that will manage the printer connection and will be used to print the invoice from RouteStar Online's Mobile App.
Supported 3rd Party Printing Apps
Printer Setup & Configuration
Please ensure that the printer is paired with either your android or iOS device before using any of the above apps. Also we want to ensure you printers language is set to ZPL. For more information on how to set your printers language follow this guide.
How to use PrinterShare (Android Only)
Make sure you have paired your printer with your android device and that you have selected it as the default printer within the PrinterShare app before continuing.
Inside the footer section of an Invoice within RouteStar Online's Mobile app, press the Print Mobile button. This will open a print preview of the invoice we want to print.
Next, press the button in the top right within Google Chrome, the button with the 3 dots followed by pressing "Share".
In the next window, select the PrinterShare App.
You should now see a preview of the invoice within PrinterShare, go ahead and press Print in the bottom right to send the invoice to your printer.
How To Use The Zebra Setup App (iOS & Android)
Download and install the app using the link above for the correct type of device you have. Once the app is installed and you have paired your printer and set the correct language we can now open the Zebra Setup app.
On the left panel, tap the arrow to discover printers and then tap on your zebra printer to begin pairing. (this should only have to be done 1 time when first setting up the printer)
Once you have gone through the pairing steps you should have a screen similar to below listing all the information about your printer and gives you the ability to perform some actions. Make sure you see the check mark and the text "Ready" at the top in the blue box.
Now you can login to the RouteStar Online Mobile app and open any invoice. In the invoice footer section there is a new button labeled "Save ZPL". Press this button and it will automatically download and save a file named <invoice_number>.zpl. So for instance if you open invoice M100, when you press Save ZPL it will save a file to your device called M100.zpl.
After you press Save ZPL, go back to the Zebra Setup app and press the Available Files button and select the invoice.zpl file you just downloaded. It will then prompt you to send to printer and once you confirm, it will send the file to the printer.
