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 Additional Top Control Now Also Available for the New Porsche 718 Boxster

The SmartTOP convertible control system from Mods4cars is now also available for the new Porsche 718 Boxster. The retrofitted comfort module allows the opening and closing of the convertibles top via the original car key from afar. In addition, the roof can be operated via the console button with one-touch. The cumbersome pressing is thereby no longer necessary.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), January 31st, 2017 — The company Mods4cars, developer of the retrofitable SmartTOP roof control systems, now offers an intelligent solution for the new Porsche 718 Boxster. The latest SmartTOP module allows, among other things, operation of the convertible top via the console button via One-Touch. It is therefore no longer necessary to hold down the button during opening and closing of the roof top. A brief tap is sufficient and the convertible top movement is carried out automatically. This function ensures that the vehicle is used open more frequently.

In addition, the SmartTOP module makes it possible to use the rooftop operation via the original vehicle key from a distance. Pressing a short sequence of keys on the remote control automatically opens or closes the convertible top. “The SmartTOP customer starts the opening of the convertible top while walking toward the vehicle, gets in, starts the engine and starts the journey, top open,” explains PR spokesman Sven Tornow.

The individual functions of the SmartTOP roof module are programmable according to the personal wishes of the customer. It is thus possible to adjust whether the windows should be raised or remain down after the convertible top movement. The windows can also be opened and closed via the remote control.

For vehicles with the Keyless-Go package the rooftop can be opened and closed by touching the door latch. To locate the vehicle, the headlights can be activated via the remote control. A short horn signal can sound confirming when the central locking system is actuated. In addition, it is also possible for the volume of the radio to always be muted when starting the vehicle.

Thanks to the sophisticated SmartTOP, starting or stopping the engine does not lead to any interruption of the convertible top movement. Furthermore, the module can be completely deactivated as required. Due to easy accessibility, the installation can be done quickly and easily. Since no cables are severed, a residue-free removal is possible at any time.

The configuration of the module can be carried out directly in the vehicle via the on-board computer. Other than that, a USB port is integrated into the SmartTOP top control. This allows the connection and thus the programming of the roof module possible via PC / Mac. Furthermore, software updates can be imported via the USB port, which are provided by Mods4cars, 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.

The configuration can be completed in the car and every single function will be shown on the in-dash LCD.

For a quick and easy installation the modules are shipped with a wiring adapter. This provides an easy connection between car electronics and SmartTOP module. There is no need to cut any wires. That is why a removal of the entire kit is possible without leaving any traces.

The comfort extension is available for 209,00 Euro + tax and also the follow-up models BMW 3 Series Convertible type E93, Z4 Roadster E89 and Mini Convertible R57.

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.
