Does the Cardo Pack Talk interface with the Multi-Controller for volume control on the TFT likes Sena 50S can?
Correct, BMW made their system open, up to Cardo to support it.No it doesn't. I read somewhere it requires some software that they don't (WON'T) instal. Its a Cardo issue not BMW I understand.
I have a Cardo Pak-Talk Slim with iPhone 13 Pro and before that with a iPhone 6S+. It worked with Wunderwheel on my '17 RT. It wasn't, however, worth it on either phone. The bike's electronics add so much distortion to the sound that it's unlistenable. Just link to your phone and use "hey cardo" verbal commands" "Music On, Music Off, Volume Up, Volume Down, Next Track". It will also allow Hey Siri commands, but they're slow.I asked Cardo this and they said...
Thanks for reaching out.
For the moment, we cannot guarantee that the Wonderwheel will work with any of our units, unfortunately.
The '21 and on RTs, or as the OP referred to "TFT" bikes have a wastely different audio system to your old '17 RT. Distortions of any kind are not in its dictionary.The bike's electronics add so much distortion to the sound that it's unlistenable.
Yes, both, but the music was just terrible. Sometimes, I couldn't even tell what song was on. This was on a '17 RT. Newer systems may be better.I haven't noticed any distortion, im not at a very high volume either..did you get this on music and calls?
Having a new GS, I'm aware of the improvements. I shopped for an RT when I decided on the GSA. My GSA has LED lights that move...a good headlight but not better than my old 1150RT's. Also have TFT and an actual GPS that works with satellites, not cell towers. I suppose I have the improved audio quality on my GSA. It cannot be better than the quality of going direct to the phone, since it uses the phone to get the music. I'm happy going direct to the phone with the Cardo system, so I won't change. The TFT system requires you to drill down into menus and turn the audio back on every time you turn the bike off...rather annoying. So...I'll continue to get music and phone service direct and do without the verbal turn by turn directions. I don't like the GPS talking to me anyway.The '21 and on RTs, or as the OP referred to "TFT" bikes have a wastely different audio system to your old '17 RT.

The latest model incarnation of the RT line does not stop with the TFT, active cruise and LED headlights. There are many improvements under the skin, one being the audio system.
Get your facts right buddy, most of your points are incorrect, especially the "fact" I quoted.Also have TFT and an actual GPS that works with satellites, not cell towers.
Why is disagreeing always personal?Get your facts right buddy, most of your points are incorrect, especially the "fact" I quoted.
It's not disagreeing. It's misinformation spread by individuals who failed to do due diligence prior to passing on their "version" of "facts".Why is disagreeing always personal?
No, is disagreeing and personal. Misinformation would mean he means to deceive, for a purpose. Seriously?It's not disagreeing. It's misinformation
Ya just cant say "Maybe you're mistaken"?Get your facts right buddy,
I'm imaging you are talking about playing media off the phone since the radio picks up from where it left off with a power down. I prefer the way it works with the media. When starting up the bike, I most often am getting ready to ride and will only turn on the media well after I'm on my way. For the radio, I have a favorites button programmed for on/off......The TFT system requires you to drill down into menus and turn the audio back on every time you turn the bike off...rather annoying.
Nope, it would not: “Misinformation” vs. “Disinformation”: Get Informed On The DifferenceMisinformation would mean he means to deceive, for a purpose.
I believe most people, even the older generation that was not brought up with technology, is aware what cell towers are and how GPS works. That is not the issue here. The issue is the claim that in order to navigate with the phone based app (BMW Connected) the phone needs cell coverage. This is simply not true.No, cell towers are not GPS, but to the laymen when they read that they are PART of how SOME devices USE them to determine part of a location, its an easy mistake to make.
It is the same thing, is it not?Ya just cant say "Maybe you're mistaken"?
