I have seen the Packtalk Bold and done some research on them and if I were to buy a new system and Helmet I would be going with the Cardo system. Thanks, GTLen.

Will it work while you are stopped? Also try moving the mic to right in front of your lips.

Having Cardo PTB for a couple of seasons now you get to both know its quirks and appreciate its capabilities. One thing that I find amazing is the noise cancellation. Even the guys who ride with low windscreens, salad bowl helmets, and boom mics are perfectly clear while communicating. The quirk is that the cardo dials into the wind noise. Sudden bursts of wind noise will sneak through occasionally and you can tell when you are talking to a rider who has an exposed mic as they come through somewhat quieter than the riders wearing full face helmets. I have to assume that this is a byproduct of wind noise management and the software where the software has to isolate the voice (All sound-windnoise=voice). In any case that makes me think that maybe the sena isn't handling windnoise well in your situation and just cannot pick up your voice out of the background. Maybe..

The 50K uses the same base mount unit as the 20s, 20Evo and 30K. The Aux jack for the earbuds is in the base mount, not the main unit.

I was hoping the 50 would have a command to link to Help Desk Andy.

"Ok Andy" "how do I connect to Ron?"
