Dictaphone recommendations
« on: 20 May, 2017, 02:22:32 PM »
I come up with my best ideas while driving and so have decided to invest in a Dictaphone. I see they have different types for different situations. Does anyone know what kind would be best for recording whilst driving?

The machine I have my eye on is a Sony ICD-PX470 which is recommended for recording conversations. Any input is appreciated.

I'd suggest getting one that works with a bluetooth headset unless you want to risk being continually pulled by the fuzz as they mistake your dictaphone for a mobile.

Dunno if it's available for private use, but I use Big Hand all day, every day, in my Real Life.

EDIT: This is an app. It works on your phone and, in the car, via Bluetooth.

Hello, Mr. Supreme.
Or as they called you around the forum: Zepp.
I want you to make a choice.
There's a slow-acting poison coursing through your system, which only I have the antidote for.
Will you murder a perfectly decent thread to save yourself?
Listen carefully, if you will.
There are rules.

Mobile apps won't work for me as I don't have a smart phone. I am literally planning on throwing it on the dashboard while driving (and taking it with me when not) and as soon as I have an idea hit record and talk away.

Damnit, beaten to the punch!

Pizza, you know you can grab an Android 6 smartphone from Tesco PAYG  for less than 50 quid, slap a 32GB SD card in it and only ever use it over wi-fi at home/work/Starbucks? You don't actually need the expense of an iPhone or a monthly contract, and a lot of apps will work fine offline, including music players, voice recorders etc.  I was a longti e smartphone holdout myself, and have still never had a contract or owned a posh one, but phone plans aside they are magnificent pieces of kit.

(And voice calls over WhatsApp or Skype are free once you can get on someone's WiFi).

Now, you be careful with that gag - it's an antique!

Haven't heard that one in years and now it crops up twice in as many weeks.
