After you scan for your GPSr, does its bluetooth MAC address
permanently appear in the settings? MM appears to use gpsd even if
"bluetooth" is selected and "gpsd" is not, if the bluetooth address
box is left blank. If the scan function doesn't permanently save the
MAC address in the settings, you may need to do it manually.
