What is Dynamic Mesh Communication?
Dynamic mesh communication (DMC) is a networking technology that creates living connections, actively seeking to connect to other units. DMC will adapt based on the behavior of units in a network to ensure communication is maintained in the best way possible. If one unit leaves the network, all other units work together to leapfrog that signal. Once a unit comes back within range it automatically re-joins the group.
How can I get the best range out of my unit?
The range stated in the product description has been tested in optimal conditions. Actual range performance could potentially be adversely affected by obstacles to the line of sight such as mountains, trees, or powerlines.
Can I listen to music and be part of the intercom at the same time?
Yes, intercom and music streaming can be active at the same time. Whenever someone in the intercom network speaks, your PACKTALK will automatically lower the volume of your music so you can hear what they say.
For how long is my unit under warranty?
All Cardo units come with a 2-year warranty, starting from the date of purchase. Please keep your proof of purchase to reclaim your warranty. Your first point of warranty service is your dealer.
Does the PACKTALK’s intercom interfere with avalanche beacons or helicopter communication?
No. Cardo units work on a different frequency range.
Is my unit waterproof?
Yes, the Packtalk Outdoor unit is IP67 waterproof. However, this does not include the supplied JBL speakers. For watersports, we recommend using the USBc to 3.5mm adaptor to connect waterproof headphones.
How long does the battery last?
Packtalk Outdoor will keep you connected for up to 10 hours at temperatures as low as -200C (-50F). Fast charge your unit for 20 minutes to get 2 hours of talk-time.
Can I connect Packtalk Outdoor to Packtalk Ski?
Yes, they are compatible with each other.
What is the difference between Packtalk Outdoor and Packtalk Ski?
Packtalk Outdoor packs the latest Cardo technology into a sleek design and easy to use interface for the smoothest communicate experience on the market. It is Cardo's premium communicator for outdoor activity. Packtalk Ski is an earlier adaptation with slightly reduced feature set. The Packtalk Ski offers similar capabilities and robustness as the Outdoor but with reduced sound performance, a boom microphone, a flip-up antenna, and a slightly larger footprint. Unlike the Packtalk Outdoor, the Packtalk Ski does not have over-the-air software update capabilities, nor natural voice operation.
