The best way to avoid this problem is probably just to leave bluetooth on. 
If you set a default gps receiver for loadstone to connect to then bluetooth 
will have to be switched on in order to connect to it. This isn't the case 
for all phones but for most. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way 
for a program to enquire about the status of bluetooth or to turn it on/off 
when needed. If bluetooth is off and loadstone tries to connect to the 
receiver it'll usually just say connection error but sometimes it seems to 
get confused and think it got connected anyway. This seems to depend on the 
phone and its bluetooth stack. For some reason Nokia doesn't seem to be able 
to get bluetooth consistant so how well it behaves will depend on the phone 
and its firmware.
As far as the accuracy number goes, lower is better. This is the accuracy in 
metres the gps receiver thinks it has. In reality the accuracy will be a few 
metres more than the reported number.
