What I REALLY want is one that has an integrated voice recorder so you can
actually note what you see and then have that tagged with a reference - I
already mark key locations in my GPS but I have to write down what I saw and
the GPS location for later use which is a real pain....

We don't usually promote products on Birding-Aus, but here is
somethign that I'm sure a lot of birders will want to know about:

The Trackstick is a smallish device that records GPS data when you
are on the move.  It's about the size of the larger Mp3 player / USB
memory stick combos, runs on a couple of AAA batteries and has enough
onboard memory to track your movements for several weeks. It
integrates fully with Google Earth - so you can carry it around on a
trip, mark where you've seen key species, and upload the info to your
own Google Earth map when you get home. IT works with Google Maps,
MapQuest and VirtualEarth.

Yes, lots of birders do this already with sophisticated GPS handheld
devices. But the Trackstick seems to be a bit of a jump ahead in
terms of ease of use, size, and integration with 3D mapping
software.  It's just that I'm not game to look at the prices because
I know I want one ....
