The new SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller made by Mods4cars for the Porsche 911 Carrera (996) Convertible is available and in stock effective immediately. The aftermarket module allows opening and closing of the convertible top while driving at slow speeds and with one-touch operation. The top can also be controlled from the factory remote fob.
Las Vegas, NV (USA), July 30th, 2015 — Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars, maker of the add-on SmartTOP modules for convertible tops now presents the new solution for the Porsche 911 Carrera Convertible (996). This new development allows owners to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds with one-touch convenience. It is no longer necessary to hold down the switch for the duration of the operation. A quick touch is enough to start a full automatic top cycle. This represents a true gain in convenience which means the car will be enjoyed with the top down more often.
Additionally the SmartTOP module enables remote control of the top from the original key fob remote. A key sequence on the fob starts a full automatic opening or closing of the top. The original remote does not need to be altered. “SmartTOP customers can activate the top while still approaching their car, get in, start the engine and drive away with the top already down.” explains PR-Manager Sven Tornow.
Starting or stopping the engine does not stop an ongoing top operation. The rear windows can be raised with the top in the down position. The entire module can be temporarily disabled while retaining all user configurable settings all of which can be set to individual needs. It is also selectable if the windows should roll up or stay down after opening the top.
Programming of the user settings can be done in the car with a signature set up procedure or with a Windows or Mac computer using the USB connector built into the module. The USB port allows quick and easy firmware updates as well as full product configuration in seconds using support software available free of charge online.
Installation of the kit is very straight forward as well. It comes with a plug-in-between wiring adapter which connects the module to the car electronics. It is custom designed using OEM connectors to ensure a perfect and secure fit. No wires need to be spliced or cut and everything can be reverted back later without leaving any trace or damage.
The SmartTOP kit for 911 Carrera Convertible is available for 299 Euros + tax. Kits are also available for all other Porsche Boxster models (all model years) and all 911 models (996 and newer). Mods4cars carries SmartTOP module kits for almost all popular brands of convertibles on the road today: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen.
A product demonstration can be seen here:
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.
