    New mudman 9300/compas doesn't work in time/home mode?

    I got the watch last week. Played with it etc. am I right that the watch will only display the compas for 20sec?
    Only in compass mode? I thought it would stay on all the time.?

    Do u have to buy a protrek to get this feature?

    It only stays on for a short time because it would drain the battery too fast. I believe all digital watches with compasses are like this.

    Not necessarily. My old PAW1500T's compass always "timed out" just like my G9300.

    Yes, my PRW-5000 too, after 20 seconds the measuring is off.
