SmartTOP Add-on Convertible Top Controller for Alfa Romeo Spider Gets New Design

Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist, Mods4cars has recently upgraded the product design of the SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller modules. The SmartTOP module for Alfa Romeo Spider now receives this hardware upgrade as well. The kit allows use of the top while driving at slow speeds and with one-touch convenience. The top can also be controlled from a distance using the original key fob remote.

Las Vegas, NV, August 01, 2015 --( Effective immediately, Mods4cars ships the SmartTOP kit for the Alfa Romeo Spider with the new, custom designed product enclosure. The intelligent aftermarket product makes using the convertible top easier and more fun. Owners can open and close their top from the original key fob remote without the need to modify said remote or receiver system.

Another main feature of the module is the ability to control the top while the car is in motion. Up to a speed of 40 km/h (~28mph) the top can be opened or closed with one-touch convenience. It is not necessary any longer to hold down the switch for the entire duration of the operation. A quick push starts a full automatic top cycle.

All features of the SmartTOP product can be configured individually to taste. Bonus features such as an extended mode that allows the engine to be started or stopped while the top is still moving, can be enabled. The entire module can be disabled, if needed, while retaining all other user settings. Installation is made easy through use of a plug-in-between wiring adapter. The adapter comes with the kit and quickly connects the module to the car electronics.

“We are happy to announce availability of the redesigned SmartTOP module for the Alfa Romeo Spider this year.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “On one hand the custom designed product enclosure is about 30% smaller than the previous version, allowing installation in even tighter spaces.”, he continues. On the other hand the new version now comes with two LEDs that show status information which helps during installation.

Mods4cars continually works on extending and improving products and features. Other than occasional hardware upgrades, all products receive firmware upgrades when new functionality is implemented. Customer feedback is always taken into consideration. All modules come with a USB port for quick and easy configuration and update via Mac or Windows PC. Support software and firmware updates are available online free of charge.

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.
