Within the project "eXplorers Pal" we develop a mobile logging device for house numbers and POI's. To store GPS Tracks is also an active target of this project. The idea is that a mapping person would simply press a button while passing houses along a street. POI's should be selectable using a menu structure. This should help to acquire all data right out in the field.
