After buying state of the art stuf it is still suffering poor connections. I made connections as explaned in the manual. Al works ok, but after making a conversation with rider A, instructions from GPS will fail. Only after rebooting it will connect. Is there someone who solved these issues?

    The Cardo Packtalk Bold only works with the Bluetooth HSP profiel.

    Did you disable the A2DP on the Rider 550? (at Bluetooth setting - Headset)

    Thanks for the feedback,
    Yes it was al ready on HSP (low Quality). it looks like that the GPS and the bluetooth intercom ( rider A) is on the same channel.

    I experience the same issue @Hendriks . You pay a lot of money but the ' performance' is poor.

    Kind regards

    I assume you are using BT connection on the packtalk to talk to another headset make via BT rather than the Cardo DMC? I have no issues with my TT to GPS channel (2) on packtalk and Phone to BT channel 1 then can talk as normal via DMC to other packtalks. On recent trip had a pillion on BT to my packtalk, all still worked then as well.

    The thing is, i have no DMC riders in my group yet. So I use Bluetooth to communicate.

    Other strange things o cure as well. Sometimes I try to listen to my music on my IPhone.
    Then I press to the Play button on the Packtalk Bold. Then it starts playing, but I don't hear anything on my helmet, but I hear it playing thru the speaker on my phone.
    What is going?
    Other stupide things like when I get a call from someone, I can't answer it. Even when it says to be connected.
    When I make all new connections as it is ex-planed in the small manual, it won't work properly. Maybe there is someone who knows how to make this work with Tomtom 550-Packtalk Bold and IPhone XS.....

    You can't.
    I have similar limitation what I'm facing, as Cardo packtalk is limited to a 2 devices (Sena has 4). As I can't connect phone, GPS and SR10 simultaneously, I want to connect my phone through TT 550, as described in the manual... But that feature doesn't exist.
