Bluetooth mode enables you to communicate with non-SMARTPACK riders, operate your mobile phone, receive navigation instructions from GPS devices, and listen to music (via A2DP).
With the Cardo SmartSet app and its remote control feature, you may opt to use your smartphone or tablet to control your SMARTPACK. Make intercom and phone calls, play music or listen to the radio and customize the settings - all from your Android or iOS mobile device.
What is DMC and how does it differ from traditional Bluetooth technology?
DMC is a groundbreaking technology developed by Cardo to completely change how group riders communicate with each other. Instead of the traditional Bluetooth 'daisy-chain' intercom connection, the group is connected in a dynamic network to ensure that communication remains uninterrupted at all times. In SMARTPACK's DMC Intercom mode, a group of four riders can communicate at a remarkable range of up to 3 miles / 5 km, and any of the members can leave / join the group, or receive incoming phone calls at any given time, without compromising the conversation for the rest of the group.
