Yeah don't worrie, Garmin GLO hast not full compatibility with IOS, so that it's why you don't see in the list, anyway just pair the device and the app will use your Garmin device, just make sure the blue light on the GLO it's stay fixed (not blinking) and you are ready to race

DON'T CHECK "USE EXTERNAL BLUETOOTH GPS" under motorlap options, keep it off / unchecked

If you wanna be sure you anntena it's working, go to race screen (where chronometer and that) pick up you antena with one hand (and phone with the other) and move the antenna fast to multiple directions, you will see changes in the speed

So let me get this straight, in order to use an external GPS unit you need to uncheck the option labeled "Use External Bluetooth GPS"? Very intuitive.

This was a bug in the app due to the bad compatibility of IOS with external bluetooth devices. 
At the moment Motorlap is not available in IOS so you should not have problems with this bug.
We appreciate positive and constructive messages.

Thanks and regards.
