Someone out there is apparently frustrated because the app keeps popping up a toast saying it needs location permissions to work properly and they keep clicking the “report bug” problem.

Alas - there is nothing we can do about this ;-). Because scanning for bluetooth devices can inadvertently leak location information to apps the android OS will not allow us to to a BLE scan without this permission.
And I get that some of ya’ll are very privacy conscious. If this limitation bothers you please chat with Google. Really - really - you can trust we don’t do anything creepy with your location info and we are super careful even avoid leaking macaddrs into our crash reports (and certainly no location or user ID data). You can even check the source yourself.
But please - whoever you are, stop clicking that report bug button
