Although it is Loadstone baring the bad news about the GPS receiver 
already being connected, it is actually your phone's Bluetooth 
implementation causing this to happen.  (nothing to do with Loadstone 
itself)  Poor Bluetooth implementation is no stranger to Nokia firmware!

Two things you can try:

1.  Turn your Bluetooth off and on again in your Phone's Bluetooth 
application.  (usually in the Connectivity menu)  The toggle iis in 

2.  Reset your phone.  Either by turning off and on again or by pulling 
the battery.  You can do this in your GPS receiver as well if nothing else
