The new SmartTOP soft top control for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet (A205) is now available. The retrofitted comfort module from Mods4cars makes it possible to open and close the convertible roof from a distance via the original vehicle key. In addition, the top can be operated within the vehicles interior with One-Touch. The soft top button no longer has to be continuously held down.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), November 9th, 2017 — The retrofit SmartTOP module is now available for the new C-Class Cabriolet (A205) from Mercedes-Benz. With smart functions, it facilitates the everyday life of the convertible user. This ensures, among other things, that the top is opened or closed automatically after just a tip on the top button. It is thereby no longer necessary to keep the button pressed down during the entire top movement.

Furthermore, with the SmartTOP module, the convertible top of the C-Class convertible can be operated from a distance via the existing vehicle key. Pressing a key combination on the remote control activates the convertible top movement. “Our customers can open the top as they approach their vehicle and start their drive open,” explains PR spokesman Sven Tornow. A change to the vehicles remote control is not needed.

The latest soft top control from Mods4cars also offers, besides these main functions, various additional functions: The windows can be controlled via the remote control. It is adjustable whether the front or all windows should be closed automatically after the top opening. All windows can be closed by One-Touch via the centre console button.

On vehicles with a keyless entry package, the convertible top can be operated by touching the door latch. The function “Tear-Wipe” was developed on customer request and ensures that the windscreen is wiped once or twice more after a short pause once the use of the spray nozzles has been activated. All functions of the SmartTOP roof module can be programmed according to personal wishes.

The SmartTOP module is equipped with an USB port to connect the cabriolet module to the home PC / MAC. In this way the module can be configured and software updates, which are made available by Mods4cars free of charge, can be implemented.

In addition, a plug-and-play cable kit is included in the delivery, which ensures an easy installation. The connection between vehicle electronics and SmartTOP is made by simply plugging together. Plug-in adapter in original equipment quality ensure 100% accuracy. No cables need to be cut through and the module can be removed without a trace.

Since 2001, the company Mods4cars has been manufacturing its SmartTOP top control systems for all common convertible models. The following vehicle brands are supported: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen.

SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller Made by Mods4cars Now Available for New Ferrari California Models

The add-on SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller kit made and offered by automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars is available effective immediately for the new Ferrari California models “30” and “T”. It allows owners to open and close the top from a distance using the original key fob remote. It also adds one-touch convenience to the center console switch.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), June 28th, 2016 — A few weeks ago Mods4cars launched the SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for the Ferrari California. Effective immediately all models are supported by the kit, including California 30 and California T. “We are happy to announce that we were able to supply our modules for the latest models quite quickly.” explains PR-Manager Sven Tornow.

The SmartTOP kits are aftermarket products that can be installed into the car by anyone. They offer smart functions and features that make using the convertible top easier and more fun. With the kit installed it is possible to raise and lower the top from a distance by using the original key fob remote. “One can press a simple key combination on the fob to open the top while still approaching the car.” Sven Tornow continues. The original remote fob does not need to be altered or replaced.

Additionally it is possible to control the top from the console switch with one-touch convenience. The switch does not need to be held down for the entire duration of the operation. A quick tap is enough to start a full automatic cycle. “This feature saves time” Sven Tornow points out “as the SmartTOP user can just tap the top switch, get out and lock the car, while the top continues to close.”

The position of the windows can be programmed as well. Some people like to drive with the top down and windows down; others prefer the windows to be up. It is worth mentioning that top and windows can be controlled independently from the remote. Another setting allows the rear windows to automatically rise for better wind deflection.

An extended mode can be enabled, which allows the engine to be started or stopped while an ongoing top operation continues. All functions and features can be programmed according to individual taste and preference. The module comes equipped with a USB port for simple firmware upgrades and programming via Windows PC or Mac. Support software and updates are available free of charge.

SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller for Ferrari California Now Available

Effective immediately the SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller made by Mods4cars is available for the Ferrari California. The Add-On module allows controlling the roof from a distance using just the original factory key remote. Additionally the top can be opened or closed with one-touch convenience using the console switch.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), May 12th, 2016 — The SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller for Ferrari California is now available and in stock. The newest product made by aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars makes using the convertible top easier and more fun every day. “We are happy to be able to offer a convenient solution for the Ferrari California in addition to the ones we have for the Ferrari 360 and 430 Spider.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow.

The SmartTOP is a module that comes as part of an add-on Convertible Top Controller kit and can be installed by anyone. It allows owners to control their top from a distance by just using the original key fob remote. A quick sequence of key presses triggers a full automatic top operation. “The top can be opened while still approaching the car. In the opposite case it can be closed quickly at the first sign of impending rainfall, with no need to get inside and turn the ignition on.” Sven Tornow continues. Neither the original key remotes nor any of the car’s safety systems need to be modified.

Additionally, when inside, the top can be opened or closed conveniently with a quick tap on the console switch. It is no longer necessary to hold down the switch for the entire duration of the operation. “This saves time, as the SmartTOP customer can touch the switch, turn the ignition off, get out and lock the car, while the top continues to close by itself.” Sven Tornow explains.

It is possible to program the desired position of the windows after opening the top. Selections include all windows down, front windows up and all windows up. The windows can also be controlled from the remote fob, separately from the top.

By factory default the two small rear windows are permanently in the down position as long as the convertible top is open. One of the SmartTOP features now allows them to be raised. The car owner can decide if he wants all four windows to come up after opening the top for a better wind protection while driving at higher speeds. It also improves on the overall look of the California with top down: Raising all windows gives the Ferrari a more refined and complete look.

An extended mode can be activated, which allows the engine to be started or stopped while a top operation continues. All features can be individually programmed. The module comes with built-in USB port and support software for Windows and Mac as well as firmware updates for all products are available online, free of charge. The module’s functions can also be programmed in the car with a sequence of keypresses.

The kit comes complete with a plug-and-play wiring adapter for extremely easy installation. Connecting the module to the car electronics is done by simply plugging in a few connectors. No wires need to be cut or spliced into, thereby leaving absolutely no damage and allowing for an easy removal, if needed.

Since 2002 Mods4cars has been offering the smart Convertible Top Modules. The following popular brands are now supported: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen. Also for the previous Ferrari models 360 and F430 Spider SmartTOP kits are available and in stock.

SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller for Audi A5 gets Feature Enhancements

The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for the Audi A5 Convertible allows simple one-touch operation of the top while driving as well as remote operation from the original remote fob. Now manufacturer Mods4cars has added two new features to the module: Opening and closing of the windows separately from the top via touch door handle and a setting that allows owners to invert the console top switch direction.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), May 21st, 2015 — The aftermarket SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for the Audi A5 Convertible makes it possible to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds of up to 60 km/h (~38mph). A convenient quick single touch is enough to set the top in motion. The top can also be controlled from the original factory key fob remote.

All SmartTOP modules come with a host of bonus features. The Audi A5 kit can be programmed to activate the hazard flashers during remote top operation and a short confirmation beep when locking or unlocking the car can be activated. The windows can be controlled separately from the top by remote. Also the keyless operation via the touch door handles was fully integrated for cars that come with that option. Tapping the door handle three times activates the top. A new update to the product firmware now allows the windows to be lowered or raised by holding the door handle for 2 seconds.

“We position our SmartTOP Convertible Top product in the market as a general convenience add-on.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “Our clever functions and bonus features are meant to simplify operation and make owning the convertible more fun. We always take customer feedback into consideration, like in this case. Now it is not necessary any longer to take the key fob remote out of the pocket in order to just lower or raise the windows.” Sven Tornow continues.

The second addition is meant to make using the top switch more intuitive. Now users can select which way they want the console switch to work. “In some countries the console switch is wired with ‘backwards’ logic.” Sven Tornow explains. “Thanks to the SmartTOP module our customers can now choose if they want to pull the switch to lower the top or push it instead.”

Existing customers get to enjoy the new features, too. All SmartTOP Convertible Top Modules made by Mods4cars come with a standard USB port which allows end users to apply firmware updates and conveniently configure the product with a Mac or Windows PC. Support software and update files are available online, free of charge.

SmartTOP Convertible Top kits are available for the following popular brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.

The SmartTOP kit for Audi A5 Convertibles is available for 249 Euros + tax.

Mods4cars Announces SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Jaguar F-Type Convertible

The SmartTOP add-on Convertible Top Controller made by Mods4cars will soon be available for the Jaguar F-Type Convertible. The automotive electronics specialist expects to be able to ship the clever controller before the end of this year. This makes it possible for Jaguar owners to join the other happy convertible owners and enjoy the convenience of being able to raise and lower the top with just a quick push of a button as well as from afar with the original factory key remote.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), September 01, 2014 — Before the end of this year the after-market SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller developed and marketed by Mods4cars will be available for the Jaguar F-Type. It allows full automatic one-touch top operation. A quick, single touch of the console switch is enough to raise or lower the top. It is no longer necessary to hold down the switch and wait for the top to finish. Additionally, the module will automatically raise the windows if desired.

With the SmartTOP kit installed it is also possible to control the top from a distance, using just the original key fob remote. A quick key combination on the fob activates full automatic top operation. This makes it possible to already lower the top while still approaching the car; a very useful feature on hot days to air out the car. A parked car can quickly be closed remotely at the first sign of rain. All that is required is the existing original car key.

Like all SmartTOP modules there is a host of bonus features which all can be configured to individual needs. It is possible to control the windows separately from the top by remote, the console top switch direction can be reversed and an extended mode can be enabled which allows top operation to continue when starting or stopping the engine. The entire module can be disabled temporarily if needed while retaining all user settings for later.

Thanks to the standard USB port on the module, it can be conveniently configured and updated with any PC or Mac. Support software and firmware updates are available online and free of charge. A custom designed plug-and-play wiring adapter makes installing the kit a quick and easy endeavor for anyone.

“We are happy to be able to announce our first SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for the Jaguar brand with the upcoming kit for the Jaguar F-Type Convertible.“ explains PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “After the kit for Lamborghini Gallardo Spider and the new BMW 4 Series Convertible, this will be the third new module we’re bringing to market this year.” he continues. With this latest addition, the following brands are supported now: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo und VW.

About Mods4cars:
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.

Hardware Upgrade: SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Volkswagen EOS by Mods4cars

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.
