Know full well this has been a problem because Garmin beeps and routing guidance was unintelligible before finding the right knob to turn it down to 25%. Thinking its still too high.

Garmin doesn't make it easy to find the individual source volume controls.

Oh, and same problem if iPhone music gets routed through Zumo before Packtak.
I have the ZUMO 660 it works great with the Cardo and HD music from Amazon (Alexa) voice commands is 99% reliable at Hiway speeds.. Really happy with this part of it. I have not used the MESH yet, time will tell.

I read the Cardo Pack Talk Bold JBL will link up a SENA.... will see this week end. Several of us are going on a three day trip to Turner Falls Oklahoma from Ft Worth.

I found a much better deal on ebay with the no name units than using the sena or cardo. I like my cheepies. they don't do fancy things and I don't expect them too. I can talk with anyone that I ride with use music or maps on my phone. I don't use voice activation at all. I just press the screen. or wait till I come to a light or sign. Most of the time when in the mountains the music stops anyway so what does it matter when the music stops. If the music stops so does talking between riders cause there are mountainous rock and trees in the way for line of sight. I use the cheep stuff cause it didn't brake the bank and still gives me options on speakers and preferences. you should try it so you can use the money on other things like fancy ice tea and the preserves on the other side of the pass.

That I managed was to pair a Sena to Cardo as 2nd phone. The volume levels were badly off. The range was a couple hundred feet. And you donít have easy link on/off, vox, or music. Because the Sena is connected as a telephone which has top priority.

I loaded 30 hours of music to my cell memory so if no cell service I have tunes. I paid $150.00 for the 2 month old lightly used Cardo Pack Talk Bld JBL, if it does not pair up with the SENA oh well. 90% of the time I ride alone the JBL speakers rock at Hiway speeds I hear my GPS and and music and receive calls with out stopping. Glad your happy will see how mine does in a group for what I use it for the majority of the time it was money well spent. Where did you get your comm at? I have a friend with a tight budget.

I had the same issue and called cardo support. They dropped the name customization so now you no longer will hear the unit say "Alberto's PTB", or whatever you had programmed yours to. They also have done a pretty poor job of documenting how to share audio while using mesh.

2GENAE if you want a cheapie or two, I have a couple I'm looking to get rid of. A VNETPHONE V6 and a VNETPHONE V8.
The V8 even has a handlebar mounted remote that works well until it gets too sun-baked. Lemme know...

Mine too. But apparently one can no longer set the ID spoken on boot. So if you do a factory reset it will be gone forever.
