Passive Lost Model Alarm inactivity timeout?

Some users of the Passive Lost Model Alarm LMA-P have commented that the current inactivity timeout of 1 minute is too short and have suggested increasing this value to 3-4 minutes.

I would like to get a broader opinion of this timeout value. Your input is apprecated, this will help us serve you better! Thank you!

Please vote here.

I really would like a 4 minute timeout. I can't really think of an instance that I need the alarm sooner than that. The one minute timeout is really annoying. I bought 3 of them and I'm ready to pull them out. Just walking out to get the histart is more than enough to start the alarm - then the hands are full with the plane and I have to move the rudder... Same for start of F3J. I get the plane ready and then during the 5 minute prep time I have to keep hitting the controls several times. 4 Minutes would be great...

FWIW - Jim

I would like 15-20 mins. It takes that long to catch my breath, think about what happened, and walk in the general direction of the crash. I don't want that thing beeping at me during my flight, I don't want it on a primary flight control, and I want it to work without a tx signal.
