I had a windows media based solution - included video too, using Netstumbler 
to control the encoder and its own GPS handling to insert Windows Media 
Script stream - this provided time coded events which you could later pull 
out of the stream.  It was all a quick hack but worked pretty well, hooking 
it into an editor was needed though as the OP suggested.

I never progressed with it either :(

Next time I'm thinking about using the SRT subtitle format and providing the 
GPS positions as subtitles...
