The aftermarket SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller made by Mods4cars for Volkswagen EOS now comes equipped with a new module enclosure. Among other features, the SmartTOP module allows one-touch operation of the convertible top while driving at slow speeds as well as controlling the top from the original factory key fob remote.
Las Vegas, NV (USA), May 26th, 2014 — Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars revamped the design of the SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller modules. Just in time for the upcoming convertible season 2014 the SmartTOP module for Volkswagen EOS received the facelift product enclosure. The enclosure was exclusively and custom designed by Mods4cars for this product.
“The new design is not just an improvement in esthetics. It also makes installation much easier for our customers” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. The new enclosure houses two LEDs that show current status, correct connections or trouble codes during installation. “Additionally the new SmartTOP enclosure is 30% smaller in volume and slimmer. Therefore it can be installed a lot easier in tight spaces.” Sven Tornow continues.
“We are happy to announce that we were able to make installation of our SmartTOP aftermarket kit for the VW EOS easier yet again.” Sven Tornow concludes. A while back the outfit introduced a plug-and-play wiring adapter. This adapter was also custom designed and allows installing the module by simply connecting a few plugs with the car electronics. It uses perfect fit connectors with secure latches to ensure a tight fit while preventing any kind of wrong connection.
The SmartTOP Convertible Top Control module for Volkswagen EOS allows owners to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds (user programmable up to 44 km/h / 28mph) using convenient one-touch operation. It is no longer necessary to pull over and hold down the top switch. SmartTOP customers get both hands back on the steering wheel a lot faster.
Additionally it is possible to control the top from a distance by just using the supplied factory remote fobs. Walking toward their EOS, customers can already start opening the top and drive off with the top down. Sudden rainfall is no longer a reason to run to the car, instead the top can be conveniently closed from a distance.
Along with these two main features there is a host of bonus features present in the module, all of which are user programmable. It is possible to separately control the windows from the remote, activate a quick chirp signal when locking or unlocking the car and the hazard blinkers can be activated during remote operation.
The direction of the top switch can be reversed and it is possible to override the trailer lockout and use the top with attached trailer. A park assist feature lowers the passenger mirror when in reverse and starting or stopping the engine will not stop an ongoing top operation when in extended mode. The entire module can also be temporarily disabled while retaining all user settings.
All features can be configured and the product can be updated via USB connection and PC/Mac computer software available free of charge online. Updates for the product firmware are also free of charge for the life of the product.
The SmartTOP kit for Volkswagen EOS is available for 249 Euro + tax.
Kits are also available for the following popular brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.

Further details and purchasing information:
Mods4cars was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.
The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.
Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.
The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.
