The Convertible Top Controller made by Mods4cars is a kit which, once installed in the car, gives owners a bunch of clever functions and features making day to day life with the Convertible more fun. The SmartTOP kit enables one-touch operation for the console switch. It is no longer necessary to hold down the switch for the entire duration of the operation. A quick tap is enough to start a full automatic top opening or closing cycle.
Additionally the top can be operated from a distance simply by using the original key fob remote. A quick key combination opens or closes the top as desired. The top can already be lowered while still approaching the car; a great convenience on hot days. It can also quickly be closed at the first sign of impending rainfall. Sven Tornow continues. The original key or remote transmitter do not have to be modified.
Like other products in the SmartTOP lineup, this module also offers a host of bonus features. The windows can be controlled separately from the top by remote. The wind deflector can be programmed to automatically rise after the top opens. On cars equipped with keyless options the top can also be controlled by touching the door handle three times. The console switch operation direction can be reversed and an extended mode can be activated which allows the ignition to be turned on or off during an ongoing top operation. The entire module can be temporarily disabled while retaining all user configuration settings for when it is re-enabled later.
All functions and features can be configured to personal taste. The SmartTOP is equipped with a USB port, so it can be connected to a Mac or Windows PC for quick and easy configuration as well as firmware updates. Support software and updates are offered by Mods4cars free of charge.
Installation is dead simple due to a plug-and-play wiring adapter harness being part of the kit. Connections between the SmartTOP and the vehicle electronics are made by just plugging in some connectors. No wires need to be cut or spliced into. It is always possible to remove the kit while leaving absolutely no damage to the car.
