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

As has already been suggested you can do this with OSMTracker, however
(and I used it a lot for gathering house numbers) IMHO voice annotations
are really too easy to get wrong in one way or the other and just tend
to turn in to a rather stressful experience.

If you have a reasonably regular numbering system in your area, I would
suggest using Vespucci (but then I would). Once the address prediction
has kicked in the number survey rate is essentially limited by how fast
you can walk. It is not super stealthy but in my experience good enough.
Alas no iOS version though (but will run on nearly any old phone).
