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.

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.

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.

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 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.

SmartTOP Convertible Top Control Module for Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Available Soon

The SmartTOP aftermarket Convertible Top Control Module for Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder will be available soon. The add-on kit allows using the top with one-touch convenience while driving at slow speeds as well as controlling the top and windows from the original key fob remote. It is possible to reverse the direction in which the console top switch needs to be pushed or pulled.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), March 13th, 2014 — Aftermarket automotive specialist Mods4cars, manufacturer of the add-on SmartTOP kits, just announced that the new module for Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder will be available within the next couple of weeks. “We are happy to be able to bring our signature convenience features to owners of Lamborghini Gallardo owners very soon. In addition to the main features we were able to integrate a lot of extra functionality that makes owning the convertible so much more fun.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top modules allow drivers to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds and with one-touch convenience. It is no longer necessary to pull over and hold down the switch for the duration of the operation. The top may be used up to a user programmable speed of 40km/h (~28mph). Thanks to the one-touch feature it is not necessary to keep holding the switch down. A quick tap is enough to start full automatic top operation.

More features are available, all of which can be user configured according to taste. The windows can be activated by remote independently from the top, a chirp feature gives off brief horn signals upon locking or unlocking the car, hazard blinkers can be activated during remote top operation. An extended mode allows owners to even start or stop the engine while the top continues full automatic operation. It is also possible to temporarily disable the entire module while retaining all other settings.

SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller For Mazda MX-5 Now With New Enclosure

Effective immediately, all retrofit SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller modules for the Mazda MX-5 are being shipped with a new product enclosure. The sleek new shape was custom designed for Mods4cars and gives the module not only a more streamlined appearance but adds convenience when installing the product. The SmartTOP module allows drivers to open and close the convertible top while driving and with one-touch operation.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), February 21st, 2014 — The SmartTOP Convertible Top add-on module designed by aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars for the Mazda MX-5 is a kit that can be installed by anyone. It allows drivers to operate the top while driving at speeds of up to 60 km/h (~38mph) with added convenience. A quick tap on the console button is sufficient.

“Every convertible driver knows the scenarios: Sunshine turns into cloudy skies followed by a sudden rainfall. Now all that matters is being able to stop quickly to close the top. Or hoping that a red light won’t change while the top is still closing.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. With the SmartTOP module the top can be used even while driving at slow speeds, so the top-down experience comes with more peace of mind.

The MX-5 compatible module can be used in three ways. 1. After unlatching the mechanical lock the top can be lowered by holding down the appropriate switch on the dash and raised the same way. 2. One-Touch operation. Same as before but the top opens or closes fully automatically after just a quick touch. 3. Auto Feature: When this setting is activated, the top will fully automatically lower itself right after the latch is disengaged and without the need to press the top down button at all. Closing is done the same way as in 2. All three options allow use of the top while the car is moving and without the need to shift into neutral or park gear.

Mods4cars has improved the design of the SmartTOP product itself and effective immediately all modules for the Mazda MX-5 come in the new, slimmer and more streamlined enclosure. The new shape was custom designed to fit the components perfectly and to encapsulate the product fully. All LEDs and connectors, including the USB port, are now enclosed in order to be optimally protected.

The new enclosure is also smaller than before and thus allows the product to be installed in tighter spots. It is more eco-friendly by no longer requiring screws and by using less plastic. Additionally two LEDs were fully integrated that aid during installation. They show current status, trouble codes and signal a correct installation of the module.

In order to make installation as simple as possible, a custom designed Plug-and-Play wiring harness is part of the kit. It uses genuine OEM connectors for a perfect and secure fit. No wires need to be spliced or cut. It simply connects in between two connectors and the SmartTOP module. It is possible to remove the kit without leaving any traces.

The SmartTOP module can be programmed according to individual needs. It is possible to configure the maximum speed allowed for top operation as well as other settings. The entire module can be temporarily disabled as well while retaining all user settings. The module comes equipped with a standard USB port for easy configuration and firmware updates via PC or Mac. All firmware updates are provided by Mods4cars online and free of charge.

The convertible top kit for Mazda MX-5 is available for 249 Euros + tax. Mods4cars SmartTOP modules are available for: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.
