hands free android note app

I like to take notes to update OSM while riding my motorcycle.   It's not feasible to touch the phone while riding though.   I have a Sena bluetooth helmet com system to connect to my phone.   I haven't found a good hands free app to take notes though.   The best I've found is easy voice recorder pro, but it still requires touching the phone to start and stop a recording.    Anybody know of a good app for this?

As a mapper who also used his motorcycle i can just recommend Vespucci for small mobile edits.
BUT i would also recommend to park your motorcycle and then survey the area and NOT taking notes while passing by.

One app that can do audio notes, in addition to other features, is OSMTracker for Android. But unfortunately I believe it requires a button press before recording. hmm At best you might be able to customize its UI to increase the size of that button (and I understand even that is rather technical, using XML configurations).

OSMTracker looks great, if I could get it to work handsfree.   Samsung Bixby seems to have some potential, but it may require coding up a 'bixby capsule'.
