FMGO Hardware Barcode Scanners

Has anybody come across a barcode scanner for the iPhone that will allow direct scanning into a field in FileMaker.


1. It should be physically connected to the iPhone, separate devices are too easily lost.


2. It should work directly with FMGO like a keyboard wedge style scanner does on a desktop.


3. The camera is not a commercial option in a warehouse or field operation.


I have had a look at the iLinea but the way it interacts is very clunky. It fires a url at another app then moves the data via url back to FMGO. It would be a sensational device if would allow direct input into the selected field.


Its hard to imagine that there isn't something out there.


Any thoughts would be appreciated.
