Cardo Packtalk Bold Bluetooth Intercom with JBL Speakers - Duo
The Packtalk Bold Duo is Cardo's most powerful intercoms kit with Bluetooth, Dynamic Mesh Communication and powered by JBL.
The IP67 waterproof rated unit features high-performance JBL 40mm stereo speakers for full-range, immersive and top-end audio, with active noise-cancelling and self-adjusting volume according to ambient noise and rider speed. With up to 13 hours talk-time on a single charge, this Packtalk features Bluetooth 4.1 technology for all intercom modes, from Rider-to-Pillion communication to long-distance communication, with full backwards compatibility with other Cardo models and non-Cardo Bluetooth headsets. The intercom can also be connected to a GPS device, motorcycle or smartphone.
The standout feature of the Packtalk is the built-in Dynamic Mesh Communication technology: an auto-adaptive, intercom system that retains connection without interruption, regardless of outside factors. The technology drastically increases the number of riders in a single group to 15, with a maximum range of 1.6 km or 1 mile, with riders entering and exiting the group without failing.
The device features multiples methods of control to operate the Packtalk Bold & Slim intercom, FM radio, calls and A2DP. This includes a unique roller-wheel interface and control panel for intuitive operation with even the thickest winter gloves, connectivity with Cardo’s smartphone app: Connect, that enables you to set up and control the device remotely, as well as advanced voice control technology, for complete hands-free control over the unit’s functions.
The Packtalk comes in two models with varying degrees of design: the standard Packtalk Bold and a lower profile, Packtalk Slim. The Bold, while slightly larger in profile, has a longer range of communication, covering a range of 1.6kms or 1 mile of distance, as compared to the Slim’s 1.2 km radius (0.75 miles).
THIS DUO PACK IS BOXED WITH 2 X CARDO PACKTALK BOLD UNITS.

Not Cardo fault.
I use these as training radios for my DAS students. They are great bits of kit. If you go into settings and change to UK from USA the voice controls work brilliantly. On the GSA1250 there is an issue with the bluetooth. Its not the Cardo units its BMW. Ensure the software is up to date. I has connection woes until BMW updated my GSA software now it works great. Recommended units.
We’ve used G4 scalas for years now these were ok ish but when we rode in a group of 5/6 it was always a bit of a ball ache keeping them all connected. Bought these earlier this year, used them as a group of 5 this weekend and found them awesome. Clear conversation at motorway speeds. Great kit and great service all 6 units delivered next day thanks a great deal, cheers to Mike Spinks.
Cardo black edition
After a full day messing and managed to get a lot further than many friends with pairing the nav and tft on a r1250gsa. I have come to the conclusion this is not what it was made out to be, yes its backwards compatible but try get that to work when you have other Bluetooth stuff attached I think not! The other point is that the voice control is the worst, it next to never works unless you can pull off some wired American accent that your not going to do at road speed with wind noise. Even hey! Google doesn't do anything but repeat what you say and that's it so end up trying to feel around for the bottom button to activate Google not what I payed for.
GREAT IN THEORY AWFUL IN REALITY
The unit has 3 tiny buttons which are impossible to find when wearing winter gloves. This should not be a problem because this unit is made to be complete voice controlled. Unfortunately the unit listens for any command or anything it thinks might be a command. During my first ride, the unit redial my mate 7 times simply because I coughed or sang along with my music, after 4 or 5 times he was getting irritated thinking I was doing it deliberately, to make matters worse I cannot find a voice command to CANCEL the call once it starts... so shouting STOP or CANCEL has no effect and there is no way I could feel the buttons to stop the calls. on occasions, the radio would start by itself, so I would get loud static hissing in both ears. It only connects with the app if I turn off my bluetooth on my phone and restart it. It refused to turn on once until I had plugged it into the charger even though the battery was full. I bought a duo pack £408 I used one set once, never again rubbish
