a6500 GPS thoughts and questions

I am not happy with the way GPS works with my iPhone for many reasons including the resources it puts on my phone...I understand Android works better but I have another thought.

I have a Bluetooth GPS receiver called a Garmin Glo that is meant to send GPS location info to mobile devices like tablets that don't have embedded GPS.  It is small and light and lasts 12 hours on a charge.  There are other similar devices made by companies like BadElf.

Question 1. Would it be possible for Sony to modify the camera firmware to tap into the Bluetooth output of these GPS receivers?

Question 2.  How would we get them to do it?
