Why doesn't CartoMobile ask for Bluetooth permissions when talking to my external GPS

When using an external GPS over Bluetooth on an iPad or iPhone, Cartographica communicates through the iOS Location system and not directly through Bluetooth, which can cause the confusing situation of wondering why CartoMobile doesn't ask for, nor is it granted, Bluetooth permissions.

By Apple policy, all GPS devices must communicate to the operating system first and then to the Applications.  The benefit of this is that all location-aware applications automatically get the benefit of the higher-fidelity GPS information without having to know anything about the connected device.
