In case, the app is in the light mode, it uses exactly identical theme like Locus Map Pro. The only change is a modification of few colors, but nothing more. So you may try to switch the app into a light theme if it has any effect.

Good idea ... I'll check it when sun is coming back (could last a little bit this summer 🙄)

Since the sun was shining today and my vacation is starting, I found some time to test the whole thing in the sunlight.
Unfortunately, the switch to "light" did not help.
Locus Map 4 simply darkens after a while.
Then I had the idea to install an "autobright" app to at least see the brightness values.
After my familiarization and setting up the app, I saw that you can use it to completely regulate the brightness. my hope was that with this app I could bring the brightness to 100% even in sunlight. Unfortunately, even after this app completely took over control of the brightness, lm4 darkened again after a short time. although the brightness is displayed at 100%.

Thank you for your efforts, Jonny.blue. I had already done exactly these tests. I had installed "Light Control" as the app.
Again, this app is unable to force LM 4 to stay light. But it works with other apps.
In one of my previous posts I said that I wanted to test my daughter-in-law's S 20. Here too, LM 4 darkens.

I am annoyed that some USERS say it is only due to my devices. I claim that if everyone were to test under the same conditions, the problem generally exists with LM 4, otherwise it would be absolutely unlikely that only I would have the problem with the S 6, S 8, S 10, S 20 and S 21 and the Xcover pro even twice (because I replaced the device).

However, I accept that Menion cannot understand the error in the app.

I am now sticking to LM 3 and, as I have already said, I will wait and see if there is anything new on this topic.

So that the problem will not forget. Compared twice Note9 with identical setting. Cloned by Backup.
Left LMPro - Right LM4. If possible also identically set. There is a clear gray fog on the LM4.
The device with LM4 is also clearly warmer and the battery faster empty than that with LMP.

I am currently playing Android 12 on my Samsung S 21 Ultra 5G.

Hopefully it is now possible to use Locus map 4 on the device.

However, due to the position of the sun, real statements will probably only be possible next summer.
