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.
