Android Question Trying to connect to HC-05 BT module

    Hi. Trying to connect to HC-05 BT module. To get me started, I am using this example (just the android code) to try and achieve a connection to a HC-05 BT module.

    The BT module is connected to an Arduino + GPS module - the Arduino is sending Lat + Long over BT using the HC-05. I can use an app from the Play Store (Bluetooth Terminal HC-05) to see the serial data - so I know the Arduino / GPS / HC-05 is working.

    Using this example, I needed to change the target SDK in the manifest to 26, otherwise I have made no changes to the example code.

    I would think this should let me achieve a connection?

    There is no log error - simply trying to connect times out.....

    Any ideas? Thank you!

    Ok, solved that - for anyone else:
    Needed to add runtime permissions for course location because SDK is > 19

    Is there any log at all? Especially from:
    Private Sub admin_DeviceFound (Name As String, MacAddress As String)
    Log($"Device found: ${Name}"$)
    If not, then add these Log lines and give it another go:
    Sub Service_Create
    Log("Initialize done")    '<== add this line
    End Sub

    Public Sub Connect
    Log("StartDiscovery done")    '<== add this line
        connecting = True
    CallSub(Main, "SetState")
    End Sub

    I've updated the example:
    targetSdkVersion set to 26 and the coarse location permission is requested at runtime.
