Solution

There are a couple options that can be enabled if the scanner appears to be dropping barcodes. From what I have seen, this occurs when the barcode scanner or the cradle loses communication with one-another.

Good Read: When to Indicate - Page 68
Specifies when the reader will provide an indication (beep and/or flash its green LED), upon successfully reading a barcode.
the default setting is “Indicate Good Read = After Decode”. This means that the handheld will beep when it scans a valid barcode. This will work in most instances.

If you are experiencing disconnects between the scanner and the cradle, you can change that setting to “Indicate Good Read = After Transmit”. This means it will wait to beep until after the scanner has sent the barcode to the cradle.

Batch Mode - Page 208
This option specifies whether or not to store labels in the handheld while discon­nected from the cradle.
By default batch mode is Disabled. this means the handheld will not store/batch labels. It will send the barcodes one at a time. If communication is lost between the scanner and cradle, the barcode will be lost.

A better option would be to change this setting to Automatic. By doing this the scanner will store the barcodes within itself when it goes out of range and is disconnected from the cradle.
This would also help eliminate missed scans

Bluetooth Reconnect Attempt Mode - Page 224
Enable/Disable reconnection by trigger pull.
This is already enabled by default, but I am listing it here because it works with the batch mode setting above.
With this enabled, if a barcode is stored in the barcode scanner but it couldn't communicate with the cradle, the next time you pull the trigger, it will re-attempt to send the stored barcode(s) to the cradle.
