Corona, CA, October 05, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- With no doubt the two most remarkable highlights about the SmartTOP after-market convertible top controller series are the ability to raise and lower the top from afar with the factory key fob as well as one-touch operation from the console button – the latter even while driving at speeds of up to 30 mph.
To further improve the customer experience, mods4cars decided to equip their convertible top modules with a standard USB port, allowing customers to connect the module to an internet PC and download new features as they become available.
This feature, unparalleled in this market, makes the SmartTOP an even smarter investment. Once the product is purchased and installed, firmware updates can be applied easily and free of charge for the life of the product.
The recently released firmware update for VW’s convertible Goddess from Germany improves day to day living even further. Now the top can be operated, if desired, even while the hitch is installed. Just like all the others, this feature can be activated or deactivated in the on board computer configuration menu.
An individual touch for everyone who likes to personalize: The duration of the chirp signal given by the module when locking and unlocking the car can now be altered in several steps.
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 California and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over
Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of after market 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.
All products are designed by a certified engineer, having years of experience on Porsche and Mercedes Benz vehicle electronics. They develop and manufacture according to all European and American (CE, FCC) directives and deliver state-of-the-art electronic onboard control units. Over-voltage protection, reverse polarity protection, safety shut-off and absolutely minimal standby power drain can be taken for granted.
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.
