OpenStreetMap

recording / playback voice and link it to GPS location, is there an app for that ?

Posted by ohmygodoui on 14 February 2020 in English (English)

i would like to find an app, which records your voice and links it to the gps location , exemple : if on a race-track you could have the feedback from the app, and you can modify/add the recorded information in the log, just by speaking

for example :

voice-start-cmd : START -> starts recording/playing your voice/recording during , if no entry and silence no recording, if gps position has voice recording, plays it , but still listens to voice and changes/adds the recorded information linked to that particular gps position

pause-cmd ; PAUSE -> pauses the recording only plays gps-location-linked information

stop-cmd : STOP no voice play / recording

the final result will be if for example you say at the beginning of the track PAUSE, it will play the instructions/info you entered during a previous pass-by ………. 90 degrees turn to right ahead , go in breaks smoothly , ….. slight turn to left,

or whatever instructions a rally co rider gives to the pilot

Although it doesn’t play recordings back.

Also, you shouldn’t rely on tech while driving or navigating a driver.

Thank you very much for the app. It looks very neat , I will see what openstreetmap offers , navigation wise . I took an annual subscription as it was not expensive. We will see it’s behaviour. And what it is capable of. R.

What is the interaction with OSM tracker. I have them both now . Are they independ ?

Can it take the gps signal of another more gpstracker because my Android’s gps is poor. For example I was in train yesterday and imoossible for openstreetmap to get a decent gps signal. Even wase has problems , it behaved sluggish in the car. Columbus v-900 is it capable of sharing it’s signal , or whatever apparatus you have in mind?

I’m not sure whether Android 9.0+ allows app to receive mock locations.

You may want to get an external GPS unit that can pair with your phone through Bluetooth. This way, you may get more decent GPS signal for recording GPS tracks.

@AkuAnak Timur Thank you for the reply. You have any particular gps device in mind ? If not I will look for it myself .

Yesterday I used OSMAND app It reacted very well on my Android You know if there is a connection - same developper/firm - with openstreetmap?

License/yr is really cheap : 7€/yr

Thanks again 💪👌

OsmAnd is one of the many third-party apps that consume OpenStreetMap data, and developed separately. I think there’s a one-time license fee, not annual

@GOwin Ok , so openstreetmap is een open-source gps tracker with some extensive functionalities implemented. It is continuously evolving. It’s tracking file format .GPX can be imported by other third party tools - like ODSAM - which itself has also tracking functionalities. and can show the mapped track ( but not play it I was told ) . For openstreetmap you need a PC to look at the track record . AUDIO *** To add audio info for a GPS position you have to use a button on de display, in openstreetmap en OdSam. THAT BUTTON IS A PITY.
QUESTION ******* 1.Can open street map be enhanced -> with continuous recording of voice and mapped to the gps position. They can do it with the GPS position , if you stand still No entry in the log is recorded, if u shut t fup ,no voice recording ( some threshold db to start ). There must be a way to start and stop voice recording of arbitrary length ( not 30 secs ! )

I know it’s not easy , but if you think about it, such an enhancement would be much appreciated.

  1. So replay in ODSAM is another wanted feature .

Thanks for your reply Check if I understood well please.

I did use Osmtracker with a rather good success. It is touch activated though, so it’s kinda iffy thing to do while driving. Then, you’ll also need to experiment what recording duration that you need, in my case it was 3 seconds. Also need a earphone/mic close to mouth to keep out ambient noise. Each recording is tagged at the gps position the moment the record button is pressed. In my case, I have to also sometimes spell out the POS name within the 3 second record time. Once all the files are done, you can open them with JOSM, it will show up like a GPX track. IIRC, click on the waypoint and the associated recording will play.

@kucai, I agree IFFY ! And so you too would like it to be more powerful with continuous voice recording mapped to the GPS position at that moment . And this without touching the screen but triggered by the voice db level . And arbitrary longer than 3 seconds . If you keep on blathering it keeps recording .

That’s the way I see it. And I believe , you too , right ?

playback after wards by OSMAND . OSMAND and Openstreetmap should work together to synergise and improve overall user experience.

’ I see I was misspelling OSMAND In ODSAM sorry for that ‘

Been using this happily since 2014! But you may want to look for (latest) ones equipped with Galileo/Glonass receivers.

Thanks Wil have a look

I’ve had success recording a GPS track and a continuous audio file separately (any audio recorder that can timestamp a file will work, I’ve used this one for Android).

You can then load both into JOSM, and align the tracks (if you make some sort of waypoint on the track and say something in the audio, it’s a little easier).

This works best for recordings with frequent talking, otherwise you’re going to have a lot of dead air and will have to speed up the audio or skip around, potentially missing info.

Thanks I will have a thorough look at your remark
