My Qt widget app has Bluetooth connection that broadcasts GPS NMEA data to a connected device.

How can I maintain this connection streaming GPS data when app is not in foreground or device is in sleep?

Is it even possible to run Qt C++ code on Android in the background?

Does Qt have any example for this?

Is a Background Service what I need?

Creating a Background Service

Thanks in advance for any tips or direction,
