Turn on GPS when App starts

  • So I was working on a positioning app which needs GPS to be turned on. So I wanted a way to automatically turn on GPS in the background, if even possible with high accuracy or atleast have a popup window come up so the user can turn on the GPS right away. But sadly I couldn't find a single way to do so in QT, if there is a solution it's always written in Java. Can I somehow do it in QT too or import Java code in it?

    Would I also be able to keep my GPS updates running in the background? Because as soon as I press the home button the updates stop to come up in the console with qDebug... or is it just the qDebug function that can't run when the app is not open?
