Note taking using a voice recorder: Help required

Posted by dcp on 13 April 2009 in English (English)

Hallo world!
I would like to take voice notes using a recorder.
These recordings would then use JOSM playback facility.
I have no idea what to purchase as I have never used
such a device.
Obviously the device must be compatible with my computer!
It must have a USB interface.
It should have a time stamp down to seconds.
As I would like to use it while bicycling and mapping
it should be usuable with the use of my hands.
Ideally it take simple pictures as well. (I use my camera at the moment)

Thanks for your help

Use of OSM Data

Posted by dcp on 14 July 2008 in English (English)

I am a newbie.
I am using a Garmin GPSCSx for track collection. No problems there.
What I would like to do is to transfer OSM Maps to my Garmin so that I can see what
data needs to be collected without referring to the OSM internet data.
Question: Can it be done and if so how???

Garmen GPSMAP 60CSx

Posted by dcp on 19 June 2008 in English (English)

I am a novice. The Garmen tracker is new, just a few days old.
The tracks are erratic. The altitude show large altitude differences although I am in flatland (+/- 10 meters.
When tracking I am sometimes up over 500 meters from the Garmen map.
For example. On Tuesday I was cycling northwards on the west bank of the Rhine river. Garmen map showed me to be on the East bank of the river heading north.
I admit I may be doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what that could be.
I have sent an email to Garmen but have received no reply
Please advise
