Of course you can use your BT connection. But first you have to be sure that 
you use the BT driver/tools software from other parties than Microsoft, four 
your Bluetooth adapter/dongle. For example Bluesoleil 
http://www.bluesoleil.com/ (free), or Widcomm/Broadcom 
http://www.broadcom.com/ (commercial).

You have to connect the PC and GPS via Serial Port Profile (SPP) BT 
connection. Now the receiver will talk to your PC on one of the COM ports - 
check the port number in connection properties (in BlueSoleil).

Then, in SiRFDemo you have to select that port on the application startup 
and set the bitrate to 38400.

For further nfo follow the manual or the short info on the forume 

But REMEMBER, as some LS users, you take all the risk of using SiRFDemo.
THe warning is also included in on above forum page.
