    Cardo Scala Pack talk Duo
    « on: 2016-09-20 13:49:40 »
    Hi folks
    I see there is an awful lot of info here on intercoms and I've trawled through most of it but wonder if anyone who has a Cardo Scala pack talk can help.
    I'm on the edge of buying a pack talk but am still not sure on what level of integration I can expect on a 2015 K1600

    Minimum requirements are:
    Nav 5 announces through it.
    Talks to pillion
    Will take / make phone calls from Iphone5
    Talks to other riders.

    Would be nice if it:
    Picked up music from Iphone
    Nav 5 interrupts phone calls and pillion other rider intercom

    Does anyone have one working like this?

    Thanks..Dave

      I'm not using BT myself but I know that the only BT system that can connect both rider and pillion to the bike is BMW's own communicationsystem.
      That said what you might do is the following:
      - connect the phone to the Nav
      - connect your helmet to the bike (the Nav is already hard wired to the bike)
      - connect the pillion's helmet to your helmet
      - with the Pack Talk you should be able to talk to a certain number of other riders as well
      That should fulfil your minimum requirements

        you will have a problem  getting that to work with any senses
        I have tried in the past and gave up
         if I was you I would keep my eye out for a used bmw set on eBay
        and save having to put the cardo unit on eBay ?????????????? scalrider

            one other thing to mention if you are using a widows phone it will not work

              I have the Schubert helmet coms.  Honestly the button are so darn small I can not feel them with my riding gloves on.  I liked the simplicity of my old SENA much better because of the large daisy wheel control.  It ca be used with or without winter riding gloves

                  I have a Pac Talk and it works great!  Meets all of your requirements.

                    I am at the same point. Some same the pack talk will do everything the BMW system does and then some,others not so much. 
                    What is the truth?

                        it also plays the bikes audio through the head set,  to answer a call, it will shut off the radio , it will show on your nav screen and obviously ring on your head set you then just speak into the mike and the call comes through, when the call is finished it will switch back to the radio from the bike ,if you have it on,

                            to be honest don't have a sequence , once I  had my sat nav v set up and working ,I then went to the menu and and paired up my cardo ,I also looked for the  bike on my i phone and connected my phone    ,it was a bit awkward at first because I have never done it before , but works great , sometimes the bikes radio doesn't come straight on ,the phone does , but after a few minutes the Bluetooth finds my cardo and the radio plays ,..

                              Nav v set up working ok so might take the plunge and purchase the cardo duo and give it a go
