Searching on an error from the hcitool, when being in this
unrecoverable state, on Google, "Connection timed out", give lots of
cases that looks quite similar. I got the impression that buggy
drivers were the cause in these case and lowering the data flow seem
to help.
Btw. I have this same GPS receiver.

For the short term, it would be helpfull if someone could point to a
way to disable this device, like w/ offline mode or plastic cover,
