Can anybody confirm this consistency with Google Maps?
Same problem here.

Now, those who have the problem should take the issue to Google and Samsung Support.
But only as a problem between Google Maps and Samsung, not diverting to Locus.
Both of those giants would easily ignore Locus. But they are not in a position to ignore each other ...

Wole, you have a working and a non-working Samsung LM4 device (mine do all work ...):
- does the screen timeout on Android level define how fast the dimming occurs?
- to test for LM4 and for Google Maps
- closing PLUS Android killing the resp. other app

First of all: In a direct comparison with the Xiamo 10, all Samsungs are darker (see my picture)

Screen timeout is set to 2 minutes on all devices.

What do you mean by closing Plus Android?

By PLUS Android I mean to swipe the app out of the Android App history.
The square in Oldenburg versions, the 3 vertical lines in current Androids.
To rule out any potential (indirect) interference between Google Maps and Locus.

Thanks for the hint. You mean the "close all" notice, right?
I do that regularly anyway.

Google Maps is no longer installed on my phone.

It would also be interesting to ask why insulation is used at all.

The forums say that overheating should be avoided.

By pure chance, I was just sitting in the car in a car park under full sun.

The outside temperature was 31 degrees.

A warning message came up saying that the battery was overheating (41 degrees). I started LM 4 and the app ran uninhibited in full brightness. Do I need to understand this? Does it only insulate at full brightness, regardless of the temperature?

Addition:
On Monday I started LM 4 on all devices. The temperature was 13 degrees and the sun was shining. All Samsung devices darkened here.

Just an idea for Tasker nerds amongst you. Maybe it can help you debugging the brightness issue? There is a command called "Custom setting" which can get/set values from Android settings. Screenshot is related. Not having a Samsung phone myself.

You could do a lot with Tasker: https://youtu.be/fLIRc8sn__g

Do you mean the view on my screenshot ?
The Tasker options look a bit different for me.

The display still gets darker

P.S.:
I wrote a short task. The display brightness is permanently set to maximum brightness after 20 seconds.

No success. The problem is that the display dims but the settings remain at maximum brightness.
When I manually dim the display, the display always brightens after 20 seconds.
The task works.
The display gets darker without changing the slider.

I tried the last Locus 4 update (02.06.2022), but the brightness in direct sunlight is still bad!
So I had to return to the older version of Locus. The brightness of the dipleje is better.
A little pity, but so far I have off the renewal of the subscription ..
