Cardo Pack Talk Bluetooth Headset - Duo Pack

The revolutionary Scala Rider PackTalk features dual-core wireless technologies for a stable and active communication network. The Bluetooth mode offers legacy by featuring full backward compatibility with other Scala Rider models. The DMC mode will compliment and expand standard Bluetooth connectivity by offering group communication that is far superior to any other existing alternatives.

DMC technology constantly forms and re-assembles its virtual network, and assures that communication among large groups remains uninterrupted irrespective of the ever-changing environment. Whenever a Cardo PackTalk user cannot directly connect with group members who are beyond the reach of the intercom, it will re-connect to the next most suitable member in the group in order to ‘leapfrog’ the connection to the remote PackTalk user. This system is virtually seamless and adjusts within split seconds to maintain an active network.

Cardo Smartset App for Android and iOS devices enables the use of a smartphone as a remote control. It allows for operation of all main features such as A2DP, intercom, FM radio and mobile calls. The App also features multiple languages - English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

  • DMC Intercom mode for multi-party intercom calls over a virtual private network – with up to 15 riders

the price was interesting and the technical conditions
Mariela A on Aug 17, 2017
The Cardo G-9s that we had for at least 4 years had much better noise control on the Intercom than the Senas I tried briefly. Also the software was much more user friendly. Since I struck out with noise problems on the Sena 10Rs, I decided to go back to Cardo. This appeared to be the flagship offering from them. It got good reviews.

From other riders feedback in the Victory group I am a member of, they have great things to say about these units. Upgrading from Scala G9X unit.

We have had the first version Scala Bike to Bike Radios they worked flawlessly since 2011 they are shutting off unexpectedly so we are upgrading
Frank K on May 30, 2017
Really nice to be able to talk when riding. Phone calls, radio, my music library , intercom with other riders or passenger. Woks good
Kirk S on May 2, 2017
This is a major upgrade from our proprietary Scheubreth SRC system. The sound quality and the ease of setup was better than I had anticipated.

did a lot of research and found this to be the best option for me
Michael M on Jun 21, 2016
DMC and the ability to firmware upgrade.
Joel B on May 19, 2016
The ability to communicate is great. This was a pain in the rear to set up, but worth it. The sound quality for the phone calls and noise canceling is excellent. It has allowed my to do work hours commuting and traveling when I could not before. The system works as designed, with the pack, breaking up and linking back up. Battery life is great.

Steve F on Jul 5, 2017
my riding buddy is getting the Packtalk and I have a G9X. Can we talk?
A shopper on Jan 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but not using the DMC feature
Can you listen to music and have an intercom chat at the same time ?
James C on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, during chat, the volume of your music is turned down lower, but it's there in the background.
Hi!
The features mention that using DMC mode you can talk with upto 10 people. I would like to know can you have a Group of 10 people connected and talking at the same time or do you need to Toggle between various users like with a G9?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: All 10 can talk and listen at the same time in DMC mode. When in Bluetooth mode its more of a toggle like the G9 is/was.
Also, if the group gets split up into say 6 and 4, those two separate groups have comms until the group gets back together again. Pretty awesome.
What is in the box of the duo pack?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2016
Will this headset fully integrate with the K1600 GTL, can you use the bikes wonder wheel to control volume etc.? I usually ride 2 up, my wife and I both have Schuberth C3 Pro helmets. I like the way the Schuberth SRC Bluetooth system fits in the helmet, but have read some negative reviews. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what Bluetooth system works best with this bike? . My wife and I both have cellphones and we both want to listen to Sirius radio and I want to hear Nav directions and of course intercom. Thanks for your input.
Edmund P on Oct 15, 2015
I use the g9and it works great most of the time. I was wondering if they mean full duplex with 10 riders or toggle between, like the g9? Talking to the whole group is a nice safety option its great for safety. For example potholes and left turners for starters. Breakdowns,and the list goes on.
A shopper on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In answer to your question: YES! All riders can speak and listen to all the other riders simultaneously. In fact, each rider can also have their own music playing in the background in their own helmet at the same time as having the group conversation going. We've just finished riding from England to Sweden in a group of 5 and had no problems at all with our units, despite frequent heavy rain in Germany and Norway, temps as high as 80F in London and almost to freezing crossing into Sweden. The instruction book is terrible, but the units have worked beautifully.
I thought i read somewhere that the "Pack Talk" would revert to your cellphone and call if the other rider went out of range.
Will this item do this?

I am currently using the Cardo G4 and it is time to upgrade. The primary use that I want is longer range intercom to other riders and bluetooth connectivity to my phone, gps or motorcycle.

Thanks,
Ron
Ronald P on Mar 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Page 13 of the user manual:
INTERCOM-TO-PHONE
In Bluetooth Intercom mode, if a “1+8” Buddy is not in range, or moves out of range, you have the option to set up the “Intercom-to-Phone” feature via the Cardo Community , to remain in contact by diverting Intercom calls automatically to your mobile phones.

It doesn't go into more detail, so I imagine it's one of those things you just have to try. Presumeably it dials whatever number you associated with the buddy name, and they have to answer with a VOX command, and then you chat via phone until one of you hangs up. But in this mode, can you also chat with one of the other 1+8 connected parties? No idea.

I'm still debating taking a chance on this one.
We have used two previous versions of the cardo units, most recently the G9x. In heavy traffic, we experience drops between our comm. We think it is trying to connect to bluetooth in passing cars. Can anyone comment on dropping comm between the two bikes in heavy traffic? Thanks!
Christina L on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the two pack system approximately a year and a half ago. I mostly ride solo but use it when my son and I get together for a few days on the road. So my experience is limited and we use it between our two bikes without passengers. I do not stream music and seldom use the radio function. I have used the cell phone option a few times. I generally ride with earplugs due to helmet wind noise. The audio quality is sufficient at best. Communication between bikes is very good as long as there is line of site. I have had no issues with crosstalk with other systems or attempts to link to other systems in traffic. We try to avoid traffic and populated areas so we may not have encountered similar conditions.
Can I connect my phone to my bike with a cable to listen to my music through my stereo (since I spent so much to upgrade it) and just use this to talk to my group?
Jesse L on May 14, 2017
I ride with a half helmet, can you get a boom mic for this? ..maybe in a half helmet kit like the G9x? Cardo's write up and photos show a hybrid mic, but I'm not sure how i would mount that.

I haven't seen one available for the PackTalk but would like to pursue purchasing a duo set up.

Also, are these units smaller than the G9x? Are they the same or smaller than the 20s?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use this with my half hemet and I really like it. I had to go to this since I bought an Indian Roadmaster and wanted to connect to my bike to listen to the radio. I now mainly just have this headset connected to my iPhone all the time since it connects so well with my phone and has crystal clear reception on the mic when I am talking to someone on the phone or someone coonected via bluetooth. The main thing I do about the earpieces is I just use earbuds since you can plug them into the Cardo.
