Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I want to buy a new GPS device and want one with:

  • A microphone
  • microSD or similar
  • A good GPS quality
  • Not too pricey (max. 120€)

So this website came up with the Columbus V-900. Unfortunately this device has three of the qualities mentioned above but lacks in terms of GPS quality probably because of its metal casing.

I'm from germany so you can answer in german aswell.


Since I noticed the V-900 is currently the only such device, I am now looking for a decent voice recorder with recordings exact to the second.

As far as I know, OSMtracker is able to log a GPS track and record audio files related to a waypoint that you enter by pressing a button on your position.

To run that app you need a windows mobile device with a GPS receiver and a microphone. Some classic PDA are like this. Or you use the special Andriod version of OSMTracker with any suitable device.
