Hi Condor...A 7.0 ?
Did you sure install Locus on the primary internal memory ? Not on the external (extended memory) SDcard  ?  A 7.0:  No admin (screen off) when installing on extended memory ! Control pse.

I have restarted the permissions on Android. Of course, according to my assumption it has no effect.
I've done a lot of tests of different setup options. I write about them in previous posts.
Control question:
Does display control work for example when navigating without POI alerts?
Yes, does work.
Tested by THL4000 phone. A 4.4.2.
Update: Additionally tested by ACE 2 phone. Also OK !  Perfect. (CM11) A 4.4.2.
I notice no change to the previous Locus versions.

Screen on/off at Navigation.
Info: Screen on_off at Navigation I did not see a change ! Functional as usual.
My settings:
Always screen on (= screen on/off control by Locus) and Android screen time out set: 30 min.
Screen Off/On by Power button: Screen off after 15 sec ( Locus setting)
Screen Off/on by Gesture proximity: Screen on continuous, until (by new wave) screen off: (Locus setting by config.cfg)
# Disable "Turn off if idle" when screen was turn on by gesture (default: false)

Screen Off/on by Navigation (POI) alerts: Screen off after 15 sec. (Locus setting)

To Do (try). Remove the Locus admin rights for screen off control in Android.
Restart phone > Locus > Use (a) Locus screen on/off  action. Ex. By (gesture).
Locus asks for the admin rights. Allow. Does not help ? 

@ Curio
1. Komoot-Wegpunkte: Nicht übertragen (3.)
2. Locus navigate imported Komoot track: Nein.
3. Komoot export: gpx track (Latitude_Longitude_Altitude_Time) no Waypoints.
4. Reply #2. By Locus_Brouter: Tracks + (associated) Navigation_Waypoints.

A lot of users do not need tracknavigation so most gpx shared tracks do not contain navigation instructions.
By track download without navigation instructions, the valuable turn and via point information is lost.
A disadvantage of track_waypoint methods are the multiple "disturbing" map Icons by the navigation waypoints.
Navigation info in tracks must be attached most discretely and keep a clean track map view when not using navigation

Adding navigation instructions into a gpx track.

A. By the (trk)track_navwpt method. (Non discrete)
Navinstructions attached into multiple "isolated" gpx waypoints.

-  Results in a very LARGE waypoint list.
-  Map view gets cluttered by the multiple (default) navigation waypoint Icons.
-  The necessary association between trackpoints and navwaypoints is fragile

B. By the (trk)track_navtrkpt method. (Discrete)
Navinstructions attached into the trackpoint elements. By: <name><cmt><sym><type>
Principle example by older video !  Actual Locus understands clear language <sym> Left _Right_Straight instructions.

+ Clean wpt_(poi) list.
+ Clean map view.
+ Robust and simple.

Picture examples. Display by Android "GPX Viewer" !

The trk_navtrkpt file contains all valuable navigation info. The track display is identical compared with the normal standard track. The navigation instructions travel discreetly with the track as a kind of blind passengers until the nav information is requested.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Create shaping points?

The Garmin file: A gpx (rte) route ? Pse confirm by sharing (a) short example file.

Garmin (rte)route: Garmin Via or Shaping Point difference is visible in the looooooong extension.
Garmin Shaping Point is a Via Point not announced by sound nor Icon by SOME Garmin gps devices.  See second post by johnc.

Function ‘sound muting’ and “Icon hiding” of the Garmin Shaping Points is not supported by Locus.

A Garmin route(rte) imported into Locus !
Both Garmin (rte)route Via Point and Shaping Point are announced by sound and Icon.

Locus track_navigationwaypoints (trk_navwpt)
Locus Via Points are announced by sound and Icon. (Sound TTS = by <name> and Icon = by <sym>)
A discrete Locus Via Point: <name>= empty and <sym>= Waypoint.
No TTS announcement , a discrete mini black dot Icon, still functional (auto)recalculate.

Garmin (rte)route shaping points are different from shaping points as used in Locus map.
Locus Shape Points
Have only temporarily use in the Locus routeplanner (database)
At navigation: No announcement no Icon no autorecalculate.

The imported (rte)route by the routepoints extension shows up in Locus with correct shape (follow streets) inclusive the Via Points by origin Basecamp router. No NavPoints, how to add ?
By the BETA version only ! By long push recalculate button in the routeplanner results in a (re)design with the Via and Nav Points.

Example in attachment. (Has one Garmin Shaping point)

I understand this msg probably was lost because of more  important previous gps problems  :)

Gesture functionality by the proximity sensor in landscape modus.

During succesfull (portrait) proximity gesture session. By any map switch to Landscape mode the gesture function is lost ! No function recoverey unless by reactivating (in portrait mode !) the screen on/off control.  (Tested and repeatable issue on both Samsung and THL phone). (A 4.4.2)

Troubles & Questions / Re: "Track has re-calculated" loop
« on: April 16, 2018, 14:28:28 »
The trick is to NOT add medium waypoints!    Create a start point, then move long your chosen path placing an "End Here" marker at each point, progressively moving it along.  Not intuitive at all, but it works fine.  It also works fine for Locus.

Can you share  a (short) demo design by kml file ?  tnks.

Troubles & Questions / Re: "Track has re-calculated" loop
« on: April 16, 2018, 09:09:26 »
I tested a kml file from Motogoloco design by adding medium waypoints between start and finish. 
No optimal klm out as the waypoints are inserted as wpt_poi, not as necessary (router) Via points.
Locus_Brouter autorecalculate to point directly navigates to finish, thereby skips 'medium' wpt poi's.

Need some usefull Locus tips ?

I have no time
  ?  8)
For me, backup function for both Locus Pro and Free (beta) is ok and fast.
Pro and Beta (TESTS running !) my settings are mostly slightly different.
Before Locus Free (Beta) update manualy backup last used settings.
After install restore. Eventually a restart. No problem.

Navigation > Advanced settings > Snap to route: Unselect ?
In picture: Navigation is not finished ? (Final point).
Other advanced settings same as before ? (Max allowed deviation)
Did you compare with your succesfull 3.30.2 pro settings ?

+ See attachment pdf  (Settings I do use:  Out of route alert: 75 m  Autorecalculate: 100 m.)
