I presume the customer has Enterprise Home screen deployed given the reference to kiosk mode on MC18?
Unfortunately there isn't a way to hide the nav bar but it should be possible to avoid it doing anything. Please take a look at the UI manager for information on disabling the home key (UI Manager - Zebra Technologies Techdocs ) and take a look at the Key manager for information on overriding the back key (Keymapping Manager - Zebra Technologies Techdocs ). These managers can be configured either during staging with StageNow or within the application using the EMDK.
Are you referring to the Navigation bar within the default device browser or some other navigation bar? If using the stock browser you can hide the Nav bar through the Full Screen & Quick Menu Controls options in the Labs section of the Settings menu. The Nav bar is still accessible through an option in the Quick Menu, but it's much less obvious to bring up.
It's more Android than Zebra issue
Check this link, maybe it will give you clues to find a solution...
We have a solution to this. There is some XML files that controls the bottom navbar.
Not sure if this public files. I will contact you via e-mail.
i read this thread. I have the same problem with one customer on mc 92N0. We want to hide bottom and navbar on top.
We need the fullscreen.
Can you please provide us the xml and a little information for this.
my suggestion in this case is to open a new discussion, instead than attaching to a previous closed one, even if slightly related.
In your case, supposing that the MC92N0 is Android based, you're best option is to use something like the Enterprise Home Screen to run application full screen or in Kiosk Mode.
You can find more information in EHS' documentation:
You can Download EHS from our support website:
we tried the EHS in KIOSK Mode but the status Bar and the bottom bar don’t hide.

As far as I know the option to disable navigation and status bar is limited to our MC18, given it's very specific use case.
An application can run in FullScreen designing the application to do so (it's not perfect as the used can normally exit from this mode). Combining this with EHS' Kiosk mode allows to cover most of the needs.
Google call this "ImmersiveMode" and makes available a demo app from the Android SDK:
