Doesn't the nav unit always display the direction you're
heading at the top of the screen?
Don't know about the Soobie unit, but in general, GPS-based
devices can't determine the direction unless they're moving.
An electronic compass doesn't require motion (or satellites).

My Garmin GPS is amazingly brain-dead in this regard. When

headings ("1.1 mi N") ...when it just turned off the compass!
