4.3 PARALLEL AUDIO STREAMING AND AUDIO SOURCE PRIORITIES
The scala rider PACKTALK can stream audio from two connected sources simultaneously,
so that you can listen to your music or the radio while holding an intercom conversation.
Parallel Audio Streaming is automatically disabled during mobile phone conversations.
By default, Parallel Audio Streaming is enabled. See section 3 to adjust the settings. If
disabled, the scala rider will automatically determine which audio source to play based
on the priority of the connected devices.
Higher Priority

Lower Priority
1. Mobile Phone or GPS instructions*
2. Intercom (DMC and Bluetooth modes)
3. A2DP (Stereo Bluetooth) audio
4. FM Radio (Built-in)
*GPS instructions from Smartphone GPS Apps are prioritized like A2DP audio
A2DP audio priority can be configured to be higher than Intercom. See section 3 to adjust settings.
• Incoming mobile phone calls interrupt ongoing intercom calls
• Incoming intercom calls will interrupt FM radio
• Intercom modes all have the same priority - ongoing intercom calls will not be interrupted
by any other intercom call

4.4 VOICE COMMANDS
The Voice Commands allow you to perform certain actions by simply using your voice.
Using advanced Voice Recognition, you can control the PACKTALK completely handsfree.

5. INTERCOM
The scala rider PACKTALK is the world’s first communication and entertainment system
to contain TWO intercom technologies that work to complement each other.
DMC™ intercom mode enables large groups of riders to communicate via intercom
independently of each other, seamlessly and automatically adapting to rapid changes of
the group.
Bluetooth intercom mode is compatible with other scala rider intercom models, the
cardo SHO-1 and Schubert’s SRC-System™. Non-Cardo devices can connect via the Cardo
Gateway, allowing conversation between your PACKTALK and a non-Cardo brand of
Bluetooth intercom.
All intercom communication is full duplex with a range of up to 1 mile / 1.6 km (subject
to terrain and within line of sight). In DMC mode, intercom range can be extended to up
to 3 miles / 5 km in groups of 4 or more riders.
Intercom range with other models is limited to the distance of the device with the shorter
range.
For more info please visit www.cardosystems.com/PTcompatibility
Open the antenna for maximum range
To chat with someone via Intercom, first pair your scala rider PACKTALK to the second unit.
Pairing is a one-time process. Once paired, the units should automatically recognize each
other whenever in range.

5.1 DMC INTERCOM MODE
The default intercom mode is Bluetooth Intercom. To switch to DMC intercom mode:
• Enter the Standby Feature menu and choose ‘Switch Intercom mode’
• Use the Voice Command (see section 4.4)
• Use the Cardo SmartSet App (see section 3.2)
Introduction
The scala rider PACKTALK uses DMC technology to create a spontaneous and fluid virtual
network of riders. DMC enables simultaneous connectivity among a far greater number
of riders than the Bluetooth intercom mode.
How DMC technology works
In DMC intercom mode, each rider acts as an autonomous hub that maintains
simultaneous and independent communication links with each of the other members in
the pack, operating in a mesh network of PACKTALK users.
PACKTALK users may join, leave and rejoin the pack conversation without compromising
the integrity of the ongoing multi-point conference call among the other pack members.
Whenever a PACKTALK user cannot directly connect with pack members beyond his
intercom reach, it will re-adjust within split seconds and re-connect to the most suitable
other pack member in order to ‘leapfrog’ to the remote PACKTALK user.
Create a new pack and add members to the pack
In DMC mode, press v for 5 seconds to enter intercom pairing mode. While the LED is
flashing, tap v to define yourself as the “Pack Creator”. Your unit will then proceed to
search for pack members in DMC intercom pairing mode and automatically add them to
your pack. If no units are found within 2 minutes, your unit will return to Standby mode.
The process can also be done from the Advanced Features Menu in Standby mode and
via the Cardo SmartSet App.
Join an existing pack
Make sure your unit is in DMC intercom mode and that you are within 3 meters /10 ft. from
the Pack Creator. While the Pack Creator is in DMC Pairing mode, press v for 5 seconds on
your unit. The LED will flash Purple to indicate that pairing with the Pack Creator has been
successful. The process can also be done from the Advanced Features Menu in Standby
mode and via the Cardo SmartSet App.
Using DMC intercom
Up to 10 riders can participate in a pack, with all pack members able to speak and hear
everyone else. To avoid confusion, only 4 members can be heard at the same time.
To start talking to other members of the pack, tap v or use the VOX.
Mute the pack
If for any reason you would like to mute the conversation but still remain a pack member,
double-tap v. Tap v again to rejoin the conversation.
Leaving a pack
If your connection is lost for any reason, you will remain a member of the pack until your
PACKTALK unit can reconnect to any of the other members of the pack.
If you choose to leave the pack you can:
• Join a new pack
• Choose ‘Leave the Pack’ in the Advanced Features Menu in Standby mode
• Use the Cardo SmartSet App.

new Pack Creator.

Pair with up to 8 other devices (“1+8” Buddies) and connect with them one at a time by
saying their name.
CONFIGURE YOUR BUDDY NAME
Before using “1+8” Intercom, you should assign yourself a Buddy name, so that other
paired Buddies can call you by this name. Visit the Cardo Community to configure your
Buddy Name (see Section 3).
Until you configure a Buddy name, your unit will be known as “PACKTALK”.
If you change your Buddy name, you must pair again with your “1+8” Buddies for their
devices to receive the new name.
Hear Your
Buddy Name
In Standby, press Z and v simultaneously for 2 seconds. You will hear your
Buddy name through the speakers.
Check Your
Buddy List
Check via the Cardo SmartSet and Cardo Community. You can also hear your
Buddy List through the speakers: In Standby, press Z for 2 seconds
PAIRING “1+8” BUDDIES
There are three ways to pair with “1+8” Buddies:
OPTION 1: Via the Cardo Community® (see 3.1)
g OPTION 2: Via the Cardo SmartSet App (see 3.2)
☛OPTION 3: Manual “1+8” Pairing
1. In Standby, press Z for 5 seconds to enter “1+8” Pairing mode.
2. Enter “1+8” Pairing mode on the second unit.
3. A
purple LED for 2 seconds indicates pairing was successful.
If your scala rider already has a full list of 8 paired “1+8” Buddies, pairing another buddy will
replace the buddy that you have not spoken to for the longest time.
CALLING “1+8” BUDDIES
There are three ways to start an intercom call with “1+8” buddies.
OPTION 1: Voice Command (VOX)
Say any word loudly into the microphone. When you hear the Voice Command tone,
say the name of a ”1+8” Buddy i.e. “John Smith”. VOX Operation settings must be set

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.
5.2b INTERCOM WITH CHANNELS “A” AND “B”
Start multi-party conversations using Intercom Channels “A” and “B”. This mode is
suitable for 2, 3 or 4-way calls.
PAIRING INTERCOM CHANNELS “A” AND “B”
Pairing a channel will replace any existing paired device on that Channel with the
newly paired device.
If you have purchased the PACKTALK DUO, both units are factory-paired and configured to
communicate via Channel “A”. If for any reason you have to pair them again, OR if you wish to
pair a different unit to make Intercom calls, proceed as follows:
There are three ways to pair Intercom (IC) Channels “A” and “B”:
 OPTION 1: Advanced Features Menu
1. Make sure your unit is in Bluetooth Intercom mode and in Standby.
2. Double-tap Z to enter the Advanced Features Menu (see 3.3).
3. Select either “Pair Intercom Channel A” or “Pair Interom Channel B”.
OPTION 2: Manual Pairing
☛
1. Check that all units are in Standby.
