    Cardo versus packtalk

    I have a Shoei neotec2 helmet so I would prefer to use the Sena SRL mesh system with my helmet, however, I have a few other requirements listed below. keen to get others' experience.

    1 not all my riding mates have the same intercom and banter on a ride is important, most have cheap Fodsports systems (they work well though to be fair)
    I want to be able to listen to the sat nav etc in the ride cradle and music, while also being able to hear my mates talking

    I would also like to hear speed-camera alerts from Waze from my phone.

    I want to be able to adjust the volume via the whizzy wheel.

    so the question is am i asking to much or will mesh allow me to do all this?

    I have the same helmet.  And I opted for the Cardo Edge over the Sena model. 
    I have only ever used the intercom to talk with my wife on rides.  Haven't ridden in a group larger than 2. I know from the youtube video that it will link via BlueTooth to any other communicator.  It will also allow you to connect to two devices simultaneously; i.e your phone and a garmin navigator unit.  I dont know if you'll be able to adjust volume via the wunder wheel on the left grip.  Havent tried that one. 

    The Edge has  the potential to be a great comms unit. But they make it really difficult to adjust properly.  I know whatever settings my wife and had set we're working just great for a couple rides.  Then I couldnt leave well enough alone and wanted to simply turn down her mic sensitivity but I adjusted some mixing level too and buggered everything up! . Could barely talk at all for the remaining 200 miles of the trip.

    I have same helmet and cardo bold , (very similar to neo and edge)
    I find that it connects well to other rider intercoms (different brands included)
    But you can’t control cardo with multi wheel, you have to use voice commands to adjust volume , change tracks , change radio, make calls( using “hey siri”)
    I think you have to use bmw communication system to get functions to work on multi wheel
    Hope this helps

    I also had the same requirements and most importantly control the volume with the wonder wheel.

    Only Sena 50s or 50r works for this use case. I got the 50r and it’s got all day battery life too.
