Hello Inmates- With the introduction in 2004 of the scala rider Bluetooth line of headsets, Cardo literally pioneered a new product category that was non-existent until then. Working closely with our best advisers, the motorcycling community all over the world, Cardo has come up with solutions and innovations that are unmatched in the market. Almost every feature and function that has become a benchmark or industry standard, was introduced by Cardo (some examples). Today, the scala rider line includes the finest and most advanced devices in the category; from solid entry level products to the most feature rich communication and entertainment system available, regardless of the helmet you wear or the machine you ride. We've joined the ADVRider community to provide information, helpful tips, and encourage general discussion to ensure you get the most from your device. If you have a question, please feel free to ask it here and we'll do our best to get you an answer. Of course, you can also send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1 800-488-0363.

ALL Bluetooth headsets (ours included) operate on a daisy-chain structure, in which one single broken link can disrupt communication for the whole group. While PACKTALK does retain a Bluetooth Intercom Mode, the significant breakthrough is DMC Intercom Mode. DMC (Dynamic Mesh Communication), conceived and developed in Cardo’s R&D labs, is the only wireless technology that maintains uninterrupted full-duplex intercom conversations between up to 15 riders, irrespective of changes in the physical position of each rider in the group. The dynamic, auto-adaptive mesh technology seamlessly overcomes disruptions within split seconds, even if one or more participants venture out of range or drop off for any reason. Whenever a PACKTALK user cannot directly connect with group members beyond his/her intercom reach, it will re-adjust instantly and re-connect to the most suitable other member in the group in order to ‘leapfrog’ to the remote PACKTALK user (please see video for visual example).
