[Talk-us] Looking for GPS with voice annotation?

Happy Saturday, all,

I have a Garmin GPSmap 64st unit that does a fine job of recording tracks, but I’m looking to do foot surveys of house numbers in an area, and for that I’m hoping to find something that has both GPS and audio recording.

Proposed use case is walking along a sidewalk and pressing a button to mark a GPS location, then quietly speak the house number.  I’d use some kind of playback in JOSM to enter all this data. 

I've tried using a standalone audio recorder, but it's way too easy to get out of sync with the waypoints. Actually *entering* house numbers (in Go Map!! on my iPhone would take too long and attract way too much attention.

Rafts of google and bingle searches have brought up nothing except how to spy on my spouse with a covert GPS audio recorder: that’s not what I’m looking for 😊

I can’t be the first to want this: anybody seen such a thing?
