Store compass heading longer?

One thing I miss when using the compass on my OSTC2 is being able to set the heading it advance (say, when gearing up). By the time I hit the water, the computer will have gone to sleep again, and will have lost the heading i set.

Is it possible to retain this heading for longer in a future release?

It should be easy to implement. How long would you suggest is a good value?

Why not the same way as ostc4?

That´s what i noticed as well,

i set a heading to be able to swim back to shore in advance and walked into the sea at night. The computer went into sleepmode before i got underwater and the heading was lost, so i had to reset it again.

I would suggest 60 minutes as a value, this 60 minute timer is reset every time the computer is turned off / goes to sleep and checked against on wakeup. If wakeuptime - sleeptime > 60 minutes the heading is removed, otherwise it is kept.

So the heading is only lost if the computer is off/in sleepstate for longer than 60 minutes.

For me 15 minutes would be fine. I admit I like Spacefish' suggestion (essentially, a *long* sleep resets the heading. )
