Hmmm... no answer? Interesting. I've wondered the same thing.
1. It's queryable and searchable via the search UIs and APIs, which is what people do to use it
2. If you want to see it on the map, you can check out the Basic Search UI, select the BT tab.

We don't put it on the main map because bluetooth data is often unreliable - BTLE in particular has a more sophisticated privacy model than WiFi that generates lots of "random" addresses.

does wigle know which Bluetooth sources are BTLE ? Would be nice to be able to show on the map BT address's that are considered reliable. Mapping BT devices have static adresses the same way wifi is currently would be a great addition. Costly on server end perhaps?
