Possible to make Venus GX Remote Console display custom like add dark mode?

I sail on a sailboat around the world and I have a Venus GX connected to an old iPhone velcro'ed on my Electric panel and always on. During night sails that white background on the Remote Console disturbs my night vision.

Is there a way for Victron to introduce a simple "Night mode" with a black background? Or, since this is an Open Source software, is there a kind programmer that could make this feature available in the next release?

This is the HTML5 app:

https://www.victronenergy.com/media/pg/Venus_GX/en/marine-mfd-integration-by-app.html

It works ok on a computer too. Just type http://venus.local/app/ You may need to zoom it to fit your screen, and refresh it if you get an error message while doing that.

The screen that's blinding you is available also via a button on it.

I use this myself for the same reason. Easy on the eyes..

As a workaround, look for a screen dimming app for your iPhone.
