Default Any way to extend standby period?

As a new owner of the iQ there are a lot of features I like and the radar performance is great. One thing that isn't so great is the ability of the unit to lock into GPS sats after startup. Is there a way to have it stay in standby for a longer period so that when I have it parked at work it will start up from standby and not have to go through the complete startup process which takes way too long.

It seems the unit stays in standby for 2 hours and then powers down.

There is not a way to change this. The complete power up sequence is not very long in my experience, maybe one minute.

Agreed that the startup sequence is fairly fast but the amount of time it takes to lock onto a GPS signal so you can start navigation is brutally slow (more than 5 minutes in some cases).

Anyways, my question still is valid and it would be good to have that standby period configurable and even set to indefinite.

The GPS should not take that long to acquire. Try mounting the iQ so that the top of it has a clearer view of the sky.
