    The app Gas Buddy is asking now for a Bluetooth permission. How to ask this... Say, I'm filling up and Gas Buddy is on, can the app switch on Bluetooth? Can an app turn on Bluetooth if Bluetooth is off?

    Welcome to Android Central!

    The app would not be able to just turn bluetooth on randomly. You would need to be the one to turn it on.

    Ah! Thanks! I love the app but that new permission request was holding me back from updating. If I turn on Bluetooth at the pump the app could then and ONLY THEN hook up to Bluetooth. Thanks a lot for clearing that up. I can't learn this stuff if I don't ask. Thanks again.
