SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller for VW EOS now with Ultra-Plug-and-Play wiring adapter harness

Mods4cars now ships the SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller for VW EOS with a new, further improved wiring adapter harness. Installation of the kit is now a matter of merely connecting two plugs. SmartTOP enables top operation while driving at slow speeds as well as remote control from the original key fob remote.

Aftermarket Automotive Electronics Specialist Mods4cars has further improved the wiring adapter harness that comes with the SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller for VW EOS. The new Ultra-Plug-and-Play adapter makes installing the kit even easier than before. “Using the new wiring harness installation has become extremely quick and easy. The 3M T-Tap connectors are no longer required.” explains PR-Manager Sven Tornow.

“This means that anyone can now install our add-on kit quickly and easily and enjoy the added benefits of the SmartTOP module.“ Sven Tornow continues. With the kit installed, it is possible to control the top from the center console switch while driving at slow speeds of up to 44km/h (~28mph) and with one-touch convenience. The usual emergency stop to raise the top at the first sign of impending rainfall is no longer necessary.

Additionally the top can be raised or lowered from afar, using the original key fob remote. “On hot days our customers can drop the top while still approaching their car.” Sven Tornow explains. Likewise it is now possible to close the top of the parked car from the remote. In order to get these features, it is not necessary to modify the original fobs or the receiver system.

The SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller for VW EOS comes with a lot of bonus features, all of which are programmable according to each user’s tastes. Windows and sunroof can be controlled from the remote. Locking and unlocking of the car can produce a brief audible signal. The hazard flashers can be activated during remote operation. It is also possible to reverse the direction of the console top switch.

Another nice feature is the ability to enable top operation with the hitch installed. A park-assist feature can lower the passenger mirror when shifting into reverse gear. The programmable extended mode allows a top operation to continue while the engine is being started or stopped. The entire module can be temporarily disabled while retaining all other user settings for when it is re-enabled later. With the new Ultra-Plug-and-Play wiring adapter the kit can eventually be removed without leaving any trace or damage.

All SmartTOP modules come equipped with a USB port. They can be configured or updated using a PC or Mac. Firmware updates as well as support software are available online, free of charge.

SmartTOP kits are available for almost all popular brands and models: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.

The SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller for VW EOS retails for 269 Euros + tax.

Hardware Upgrade: SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Volkswagen EOS by Mods4cars 1/2

Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars revamped the design of the SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller modules. Just in time for the upcoming convertible season 2014 the SmartTOP module for Volkswagen EOS received the facelift product enclosure. The enclosure was exclusively and custom designed by Mods4cars for this product.

“The new design is not just an improvement in esthetics. It also makes installation much easier for our customers” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. The new enclosure houses two LEDs that show current status, correct connections or trouble codes during installation. “Additionally the new SmartTOP enclosure is 30% smaller in volume and slimmer. Therefore it can be installed a lot easier in tight spaces.” Sven Tornow continues.

“We are happy to announce that we were able to make installation of our SmartTOP aftermarket kit for the VW EOS easier yet again.” Sven Tornow concludes. A while back the outfit introduced a plug-and-play wiring adapter. This adapter was also custom designed and allows installing the module by simply connecting a few plugs with the car electronics. It uses perfect fit connectors with secure latches to ensure a tight fit while preventing any kind of wrong connection.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top Control module for Volkswagen EOS allows owners to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds (user programmable up to 44 km/h / 28mph) using convenient one-touch operation. It is no longer necessary to pull over and hold down the top switch. SmartTOP customers get both hands back on the steering wheel a lot faster.

Additionally it is possible to control the top from a distance by just using the supplied factory remote fobs. Walking toward their EOS, customers can already start opening the top and drive off with the top down. Sudden rainfall is no longer a reason to run to the car, instead the top can be conveniently closed from a distance.

Along with these two main features there is a host of bonus features present in the module, all of which are user programmable. It is possible to separately control the windows from the remote, activate a quick chirp signal when locking or unlocking the car and the hazard blinkers can be activated during remote operation.

The direction of the top switch can be reversed and it is possible to override the trailer lockout and use the top with attached trailer. A park assist feature lowers the passenger mirror when in reverse and starting or stopping the engine will not stop an ongoing top operation when in extended mode. The entire module can also be temporarily disabled while retaining all user settings.

All features can be configured and the product can be updated via USB connection and PC/Mac computer software available free of charge online. Updates for the product firmware are also free of charge for the life of the product.

The SmartTOP kit for Volkswagen EOS is available for 249 Euro + tax.

Kits are also available for the following popular brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.
