setting the command
sudo hciconfig hci0 auth 
before connecting helps me to prevent disappearing the pin dialog.
I have find this method here:

1) First operations is finding the GPS device address with this command:

hcitool scan
Scanning ...

 00:13:F1:01:40:AE BT-GPS 0140AE

 00:18:8D:11:5F:F3 Zinux6680

Record the BT-GPS address, this is used later.

2) Enable the authentication on the pc blue-tooth dongle.

sudo hciconfig hci0 auth

3)Create a connection with the device
sudo hcitool cc 00:13:F1:01:40:AE

Now a popup menu request the pin for the device, insert it.
