So I picked up another Packtalk bold for my second helmet.....and for some weird reason I cannot play music from my iPhone XS...
Ive tried pairing the packtalk with Nav6 first followed by the phone with Nav6 and vice versa.
Everything works but media doesnt.
My older packtalk didnt have this issue.....and I for my life cannot remember how I had paired it in which sequence.
Phone works just the music part doesnt and neither does the music screen show up on the Nav 6 anymore
Weird

It took us about 5 years to "sort of" figure out the Packtalks. I finally laminated instruction "cheat sheet" and keep it with me. My riding buddy has an RT which complicates things even more, because of the needed satellite radio connection with the bike.

Reset or clear all previous connections.
Try pairing your phone o the helmet first. Make sure all works as it should like music, phone calls, and navigation.
Then without the phone anywhere near, pair the Packtalk to the NAV6.
Then with phone on and bike on, not started, turn on Pactalk.
Packtalk should say something like GPS1 connected, Phone1 connected.
At least thats what my Cardo Freecom 4 says.
Test all works.
Good luck.

I have two PT Bold units and have never had any issues with running music from my iPhone8+. I have never paired with my Nav VI though. Always straight from the phone to the PT.

Clear all pairings in the PackTalk, Phone and GPS.
Pair your PackTalk to your GPS using Phone 2 and the GPS option. Page 7 of the Cardo Instructions.

To pair Bluetooth channel 2 to another Bluetooth device:
1. Enable Bluetooth on the device (for example, your mobile phone, GPS device, or music player).
2. On the unit in standby mode, press for 5 seconds. The LED flashes red and blue.
3. Tap twice. The LED flashes red and green.
4. If you are pairing a GPS device, roll the control wheel inward.
The LED flashes slower.
5. On the device you are pairing, search for Bluetooth devices.

6. When your PACKTALK BOLD appears in the list of available devices, select it.

Pair your phone to the GPS. After the pairing is complete, on the GPS home screen select Apps. Select Media Player. On the left hand side of the screen select the Bluetooth option.

Now anything that you play on your phone, Pandora, Amazon Music, etc or any other audio will play through your GPS to your PackTalk Headset.
You will be able to listen to music and when the GPS gives you a command it will override the music. Same for a phone call.
You will also be able to make and receive phone calls. When the phone calls end, music returns. This is why it's important to pair your headset to the GPS using PHONE 2/GPS of the headset.

I've been using this setup for several years and I have a 99% success rate. You do have to have all three devices (GPS, phone and headset)turned on for this setup to work. Occasionally after days of working as advertised, something will not connect. In that case you will need to turn everything off and back on. This has always resolved the issue.

Good Luck.
