iirc the author of dictator added features specifically to make it usable for 
audio tagging while recording tracklogs with tangogps, though it should work 
with omgps too. I've not tried it though - too much wind noise when I'm 
cycling. I usually stop and take notes on dead tree from time to time instead.
