I did that....purchased the Cardo Packtalk Bolds, a pair of them with the JBL speakers.Do yourself a favor and get the Cardo Packtalk Bold and be done with it. Throw the Senas away.
Brian, this is the first problem I've heard reported with the Cardo Paktalk Bold units. Sorry to hear this, as I thought maybe the Cardos worked better than the Sena unit. When you say "Intercom Mode" does this refer to a Bluetooth intercom mode or a Mesh mode?I did that....purchased the Cardo Packtalk Bolds, a pair of them with the JBL speakers.
Had a bunch of issues with them and worked with Cardo for 2-weeks via email and phone.
Every time I used intercom mode it would not reconnect to the bike unless I cycled power on them.
They could not find a solution......After their last ridiculous comment of trying an Android phone I returned them. I gave them a chance, big fail for me.
I purchased a pair of Sena 20S Evos.
Simple and they just work great with the new Goldwing......zero issues.
Just need to be a little careful with them in a downpour.

We currently have the Sena 20S and we use the rider to passengar intercom all the time, it is probably the single most important feature for us. So if this doesn't work on the Cardo, then that is going to be a big let down for sure.Fred,
I tried it both in mesh and Bluetooth, did the same in both modes........it would connect intercoms just fine but then it would never connect back to the bike's audio.
I tried a bunch of different connection configurations and ways to pair the headset to the bike, all under direction of Cardo.
Nothing worked.......had to cycle power on the headsets to reconnect.
I got frustrated with the time commitment to make sometihing simple work and eventually the ridiculous responses from Cardo.
No idea if I got some bum headsets, both did the same thing, or if it's some sort of design bug?
I gave up and went back to a proven to work format.......the Sena 20 Evo.
I HOPE you meant "Cardo" and not cardio. WE don't want you having a heart attack Doug. LOLI have had a 30K for two years. After my iPhone iOS update, it will no longer take voice commands to my phone. Sena doesn’t seem to want to fix it , so my next communication deviance will be cardio.
