Google Maps contrast issue on Optimus V?
When I'm using google maps to view a rural area with few roads, I find the contrast is so poor I can barely see the roads. does anyone else have this problem? Here's a screenshot
it actually looks better here on the PC than it does on my phone. I can't seem to find contrast settings on the phone, only brightness, and this doesn't seem to help.
I posted this is the app forum and one person said he got similar results on a different device. So is this just bad programming from google? Seems to me the road should be a nice dark black line. why is it so light? I can barely see it!
If anyone wants to try viewing the same spot (and maybe sharing a screenshot), try
Williams Hill Road
Richmond, VT 05477
I'd be interested to know if other people with Optimus V have the same kind of low contrast issue on google maps.
