One of tapio's screenshots (was it from Tasker?) revealed a long list of Android screen related internal settings that you cannot view or change via Android UI.
There is a 99% chance that one of those settings is screwed in your devices.
I have found this list. Yes, this list was from Tasker.

But for me there are no or only a few entries for brightness.
This is probably because tapio does not have a Samsung phone.
Huawei probably has other internal settings

Yes. I cannot teach how to use Tasker, just want to say there's the possibility to find something.

@JackRussel, did you also search in Type:System?

One additional question. Did anyone try if "dark mode" or "light mode" set directly in the Locus Map 4 settings make a difference?
"Light Mode" or "Dark Mode" make no difference.

I've also found a topic on XDA with probably the same issue. One suggestion was to disable animation in the device, so maybe you should give it a try.
Thanks for the link. But there Huawei cell phones are affected and they do not cause problems in Locus.

Regardless. I turned off animation in developer options. Then I set the animation to 0.5x. No effect.
The option "under sunlight" does not exist on Samsung.

Thanks anyway.

Hi,
I just found this entry in an Android help forum:
https://www.android-hilfe.de/forum/samsung-galaxy-s22-ultra.4041/maximale-helligkeit-bei-sonneneinstrahlung-erzwingen-temperatur-limit-deaktivieren-how-to-no-root.1004285.html

I tried it (with google maps) ... and it seems to work.
Display remains bright ... 👍

I studied the (German language) Android forum entry and it shuts down the (partially emotional) Locus related discussion once and for all.
It is Samsung's strategy to cope with overheating and their approach, controlled by two hidden switches.

I set my two flags ... removed rights... and finaly deinstalled the app.

... and LM4 (and google maps) remains bright.

First of all, many thanks to jonny.jlue for your tip.

I made the changes and my S 21 stays bright.
 
So far so good. But it's not that simple after all. The general question, why LM 3 no and LM 4 yes, is not answered by this.

During my two-hour bike ride yesterday (outside temperature 25 degrees and full sun) I measured the battery temperature with both LM 3 and LM 4. In both cases the temperature was identical between 34.4 degrees in the shade and up to 39 degrees in the sun.

I read in the forums a few weeks ago that Samsung generally darkens from 35 degrees, other manufacturers only from 50 degrees.

So why doesn't LM 3 darken?

But I don't invest any more time in answering this question. I had already bought the Oppo cheaply used and am very satisfied with it and the LM 4.
