In practical terms, unless you understand the electronics and all of the relevant protocols, no. A certain person on this forum does come out with some pretty amazing electronics projects like Comms Links and large volume Datapaks and stuff, from time to time, so there are people about who can do it.
 
Bluetooth is a vastly more advanced communications technology than 'good ole' RS232! It's literally like comparing a smartphone to two cans with a piece of string between them. RS232 is incredibly S-L-O-W by comparison to Bluetooth.
 
That said, you might be able to find a converter on AliBaba or something, but you would be looking at, "RS232 to Bluetooth converter" and it is not as simple as connecting a few wires!

That was just a quick search. The one above sends data over Bluetooth, but when they say, 'data' it means that you'll still need your MAXRS232 chip for RS232 level conversion and design a small circuit around it to interface to the converter. Keep looking, you might find one that does it all for under $10!

Ooh, this is promising! THANK YOU! I'm snowed in at the moment (although, thankfully, the power has not yet gone out... but I'm waiting, as the snow is still falling...) but I'll take a proper look once the weather clears and I'm out of 'hunker down' mode...

Thanks guys, I'll look in to all of these.  
 
Learning to program will be a later project, while making this list is something I'd like to get on soon.

I use this USB Comms Link with windows 10, and it works just as good as it did with windows 7.
 
In particular, windows 10 automatically recognises the serial chip and has a hardware driver for it, and the Boris's Psi2Win program runs fine on windows 10 too, so can then communicate with it via that windows driver.
 
I have a page about using comms links (usb or otherwise) here:

Hi Steve.
I am surveying engineer and I use PsionII LZ since 1992 to collect measuring data from surveying instruments.
Modern instruments have data collectors on board but I don't like so much their routines. So for me the best external data collector is Psion II

I am Nick Kostelidis.
I had made this membership (Nick_Kostelidis) many years ago.
Two years ago I wanted to ask for something here but I had forgoten my user name.So  I asked Mikesan to make a new membership for me with user name "Nikos Athens".
A few weeks ago I was watching the members list and I found my old username. So I use my old username sometimes in ordrer to keep it "alive".  
Now as far as the South - Psion II communication is concerned, I am very disappointed. South instrument's behavior is very nondescript.
As I told you I have made comms routines for Topcon instrumens, for Sokkia - Sokkisha instruments and for Nikon instruments too.
The instruments of these brands have a normal behavior as is being written in instruction manuals. I remember sometime I had a problem with Topcon communication, I asked for help from the company and they helped very much. I send emails to South company in china , in India , in USA but I take no answer.
Anyway. I ll see what I will do.
In any case I thank you for your help.
All the best.
Nikolaos (Nikos) Kostelidis.

Thank you Mikesan.
That means that no datapak or flash datapak is safe unfortunately
