Big thumbs down for Cardo

Hey all, I got a Cardo Packtalk Slim a few months ago, and it's already crapped out. Cardo support has been a hall of ghosts, and they don't respond to voicemails, twitter jabs, and just barely to emails. While I think the Cardo has better features than the comparable Senas, the QC apparently sucks and there's no support post-purchase. I suspect they're going to, eventually, offer me some bullshit discount on a new unit. Happily I'm a lawyer so I can probably convince them to refund me instead, so I can get something that works.

Relatedly, going from having a navi to not is like losing a limb.

They make helmet communicators, like the better known brand Sena.

Sorry to say, they are all pretty bad. Senas, cardos, my friends always have problems with them

My son and I went down the Cardo route a few years back. It seemed like such a good solution to the communications issue. The reality was just awful. We spent a lot of money and never had a system that worked reliably. Cardo support was useless and we were left with a pile of unreliable equipment that just would not work.



We find it easier to just stop if we need to talk or use cell phones if we get separated from the group. For us a group is 3 or 4 riders. More than that just leads to chaos.

I've been through a couple generations of ScalaRider products as have my brother and father, and I've had no complaints with any of them.

My two Sena 10s units have performed flawlessly. I was apprehensive about price at first, but Id GLADLY replace with the same model if mine were to stop working. Ive been using these units for at least 3 years, probably longer.

We just did a 310 miler out to Pennsylvania and back with five riders all connected with Sena 20s models. They worked without issue throughout the day. Great clarity via the "daisy chain." No complaints!
