There is a chance you can communicate with the device as though the Bluetooth link is a serial port.  The manufacturer might be able to help.  If the device simply dumped data and did not need a dialog, you might be able to discover how the messages look, but if if a dialog is needed, that would be hard without some sort of clue.  

If the device software can be run as a command-line app, you might be able to use shell() or open process to communicate with the software.  

Otherwise, you might need to create or have created an external.

The machine comes with software, but would prefer to handle it on my own within LC.
