Voice or VHF recording
The device has a 3.5mm audio jack socket (line-in, adjustable gain and activation level). Audio data are stored to standard files with a .WAV extension. Data files contain internal links to the audio files, and the software places links to audio files at the geographical points in the GPX file where they were recorded. You can use it as a “voice log book” or to automatically save VHF weather forecasts and conversations.
