  It depends mainly on ryou receiver; LS only displays  the data it is 
receiving unless you are  using the software heading.

  Some receivers such as Holux M-1000 are not very responsive for heading 
changes in slow speeds. Those with static navigation enabled such as Nokia 
LD-3W are totally useless until you walk quite fast.

   It takes few steps  and couple of seconds to get two reliable locations 
for  the heading calculation.

  Another way is to implement a feature to quicly mark one location and 
measure distance and direction from it. In this mode one has not walk very 
fasto to get the heading but at least few meters should be moved anyway to 
get some distance to the reference point.
