The SmartTOP add-on kit for Mercedes-Benz SL R230 made and offered by Mods4cars allows owners to use the console switch while driving at slow speeds of up to 60 km/h (~38mph). All that is needed is a quick touch to start full automatic top operation. The top can also be controlled with simple, intuitive commands from the original remote key fob.

Additionally all SmartTOP modules offer a host of bonus features aimed at making the convertible top experience more enjoyable. The SmartTOP module for SL R230 now received a firmware update adding another feature: Keyless-Go operation on cars equipped with the factory start/stop button feature. Open and close the convertible top by simply touching the door handle a certain way.

“We see our SmartTOP Convertible Top Controllers first and foremost as a convenience add-on.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “By making operation simple and intuitive we strive to make the top down experience as enjoyable and convenient as possible. This new feature allows drivers to keep the key in their pocket while still being able to open or close the top from outside the car.” he continues.

Mods4cars is continually working on adding new features and improve operation of the convertible top. Customer requests are always welcome and often result in firmware updates down the road. “It has been almost 10 years that we brought the SmartTOP product for the Mercedes-Benz SL to market and we still keep adding functionality via firmware updates and free of charge.” Sven Tornow concludes.

All existing customers get to benefit from the new functions the same way new ones do. All SmartTOP modules come with a standard USB connector and support software for PC and Mac. The module can be conveniently configured and firmware updates flashed in seconds and at no charge. After purchasing a SmartTOP module, firmware updates, added functions and improvements are always free, for the life of the product.
