The Scala Rider PACKTALK introduces groundbreaking DMC (Dynamic Meshwork Communication) technology to re-define your riding experience.  This new innovative technology introduces the 3rd generation of communication systems for riders, enabling your large rider groups to maintain constant connectivity through a virtual network that is both spontaneous and fluid.  Each rider can randomly join, leave and re-join the others without compromising the conversation of the entire group.  There is no equivalent in the entire motorcycle communication industry.

The PACKTALK incorporates DMC and Bluetooth technologies to complement each other.  The auto-adaptive nature of Cardo's DMC technology constantly forms and re-assembles itself to ensure that communication among a group of riders remains uninterrupted, irrespective of the ever-changing environment.  The complimentary Bluetooth mode gives you the freedom to conduct mobile calls, receive navigation instructions, listen to music (via A2DP or the built in FM radio) and connect via intercom with other Bluetooth communication systems.  The PACKTALK is the world’s only system with dual communication technologies on board.

With the Cardo SmartSet app and its remote control feature, you may opt to use your smartphone or tablet to control your PACKTALK.  Make intercom and phone calls, play music and radio, plus customise the settings - all from your Android or iOS mobile devices.
