Las Vegas, NV, November 26, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Automotive aftermarket electronics specialist Mods4cars now offers a SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller module for the new BMW 2 Series (F23). The kit makes using the top more convenient by adding intelligent features. It is possible to open or close the top while driving with one-touch operation. A quick touch is enough to start an automatic top open or close cycle. It is not necessary any longer to hold down the switch for the entire duration. SmartTOP customers get to return both hands to the steering wheel immediately.
Additionally the SmartTOP module makes it possible to operate the top from a distance by using the original key fob remote. “This feature enables owners to open the top while still approaching the car,” explains PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “Our customers are able to get in their cars on hot days with the top already being down,” he continues. Likewise, at the first sign of impending rainfall the top can be closed by remote, without the need to run to the car. No changes are necessary to the existing keys.
This new Mods4cars product, like others before, offers a host of bonus features as well: All windows can be closed simultaneously with one-touch convenience by using the “all windows” switch in the driver’s door. The windows can be remote controlled separately from the top. The direction of the console top switch can be reversed. An extended mode can be activated which allows starting or stopping of the engine while an ongoing top operation continues. The entire module can be disabled temporarily while retaining all other user settings for when it is re-enabled later.
All SmartTOP products come equipped with a USB port for easy updates and configuration via Mac or PC. Support software as well as firmware updates are available free of charge online. The kit comes complete with a custom designed plug-in-between wiring adapter which makes connecting the SmartTOP module to the car electronics a matter of simply plugging in two connectors.
The convenience add-on kit for the new BMW 2 Series Convertible is available for 299 Euros + tax. Additional SmartTOP modules are being offered for 1, 2, 4 and 6 Series as well as Z4 and Mini.
Mods4cars supports 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.
A product demonstration can be seen here:
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.
