As far as you know, are most phones limited to only having one bluetooth device connected at a time?

: Hi Sarah,

: I understand your problem and others have reported this too.  Most 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.

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.
