Las Vegas, NV, March 07, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Effective immediately, passengers in many current Volkswagen models get to enjoy the TV and DVD playback functionality while the car is moving at any speed. The add-on hardware designed and made by Mods4cars removes all speed restrictions car manufacturers usually put in place to prevent use of multimedia features while driving. This allows passengers to enjoy multimedia entertainment on road trips.
"We now have a professional, non-volatile hardware solution for our customers' TV and DVD on the road needs," says PR manager Sven Tornow. "Our product can quickly be enabled and disabled with simple key combinations. Since it is a hardware solution, OEM software updates regularly done at the dealer during warranty repairs or routine inspections will not erase the functionality as is usually the case with software-based unlocks," Sven Tornow continues.
The SmartTV video unlocker module is designed, developed and made by aftermarket electronics specialist Mods4cars. The company has been in the business of engineering highly sophisticated convertible top add-on modules called SmartTOP for 10 years. The SmartTOP modules allow drivers to conveniently open and close the top while driving at slow speeds and from the key fob remote. "Now we can offer a professionally designed product that does not require a convertible," Sven Tornow concludes.
All automotive modules offered by Mods4cars come with a standard USB port for quick and easy updates as well as simple configuration of user specific settings with the help of a custom support software program. Updates are offered free of charge for the life of the product.
The TV/DVD in motion unlocker SmartTV is compatible with the Volkswagen audio systems MFD-2, RNS-300 and RNS-510.
Additional SmartTV modules are available for Bentley, BMW, Mercedes Benz and Skoda.
SmartTOP rooftop modules are available for: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.
The SmartTV kit is available for 149 Euros + tax.

Further details and purchasing information:
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.
