Requiring location to be enabled for Bluetooth is a design decision. 
Originally it was not required for Android, but your location can be 
leaked by Bluetooth anyway (it has MAC addresses), so in later versions 
of Android location permission has been a requirement if you're going to 
enable Bluetooth, just to explicitly let the user know that their 
location is not going to be private.
