Well sadly one can never interface a sextant into a autopilot either (although wouldn't that be nifty the first ever interface able NMEA 2000 Sextant....)
Jody, there's no technical
reason why it can't be done: A little bolt-on electronics module to read the index setting when you press a button, some smarts to look up the tables for the date/time at your location and do the calcs and then bluetooth the position back to your laptop...
a small problem though - no-one would buy it!
