  • Share music with your passenger in DMC mode! Just make sure to pair your passenger in Bluetooth, then in DMC (and pick a playlist worth sharing), and you’re good to ride.
  • Riding in Bluetooth mode? Now all mobile phone platforms can enjoy a premium DMC feature- listening to music or navigation while talking through your Bluetooth intercom. Go update your Cardo Connect app and activate ‘Audio Mixing’ in the ‘Audio Settings’.
  • The world’s best communicator is even more robust with improvements to the DMC intercom’s razor-sharp connectivity. How sharp? Supermoto cornering sharp.
  • We’ve caught some Bugs on our visor and had them cleaned off.
