Yes, the combination of high temperature (exposed to the sun in front of the car), high brightness (so you can see it in sunny weather in the front of your car), on for long periods of time (hrs on whilst on the road), and some static screen elements are all potentially bad news for an OLED screen. As this use case is a big part of how I use my phone, it's the one reason I've so far resisted any
phone with an OLED/AMOLED screen, despite the benefits of it in other respects. I don't want to mess with having to "manage" protecting the screen from burning.
Some folk don't seem to have a problem with OLED screen burn these days (maybe they live in cooler climates with less sun?), so it's a case of if you want to take that chance, and guessing if screen burn will be covered by the warranty - let alone what happens after the warranty period expires. New screens aren't cheap. Otherwise just stick to phones with LCD displays...
