[Loadstone] suggestions

Hi Sarah,

I understand your problem and others have reported this too.  Most of the 
development team admitedly leave their Bluetooth switched on all of the 
time since it doesn't appear to drain the battery as much as with earlier 
phones.  Subsequently we do not normally have this problem.

We'll do some tests and see if this is possible to implement for a future 
release.  The phone's bluetooth functionallity is pretty limited. 
(limmited by the phone not Loadstone)

If we can get this working it would be a configuration setting rather than 
a default action because Bluetooth connectivity isn't always required 
when exploring or when you are not using a GPS receiver.

Best regards,

I don't know if this is happening to other people, but if I start Loadstone with bluetooth switched off, the program says it's not connected to the receiver, but if I go to the gps menu and tell it to connect to default gps, it thinks it's already connected. I have to restart the phone in order to make Loadstone see the receiver again, remembering, of course, to switch on bluetooth first.
