So, given that when you are in exercise mode (after you press the start button) you cannot view the compass, I do not see any available view that enables you to see your heading. When you are going through the list of views available on movescount.com, you do not have any option for heading, bearing, etc. This means once you are in exercise mode, and you can no longer access the 3D compass, you do not have any way to see your heading with the GPS.
Any GPS I have ever used, whether it be a car, hand held, or my Garmin FR 610 shows you your heading when you are in motion. This is like GPS 101 folks.
Not to be sarcastic, but does the "GPS for explorers" really not allow you to check your heading with either the compass, or the GPS when you are in exercise mode (i.e., trekking)? Suunto's reasoning up until now was to leave some features out to focus on the "core functionality" of the watch - this one in my view would classify as "core functionality."
Am I missing something here?
