Effective immediately Mods4cars ships the aftermarket SmartTOP Convertible Top Modules for the Volvo C70 Convertible in the new, custom designed product enclosure. It was made exclusively for Mods4cars and makes installation of the product simpler and more straightforward. The SmartTOP modules make using the convertible top more fun, more convenient and give owners a bunch of bonus features.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), September 22nd, 2015 -- Mods4cars now ships the SmartTOP add-on Convertible Top Controller for Volvo C70 Convertibles equipped with the new product enclosure. Designed specifically and exclusively for the SmartTOP modules, this new, slimmer enclosure allows installation in very tight spots in the car while two integrated LEDs show the module status and help during the installation phase.

“The new product design of our SmartTOP Convertible Top modules now matches the sophistication of the product internals.” says PR Manager Sven Tornow. The smart Convertible Top add-on modules make use of the top on a daily basis more fun and come with many convenient extra features. The SmartTOP makes it possible to open and close the roof on the Volvo C70 while driving up to 40 km/h (~28mph) with just a quick tap of a button. It is no longer required to pull over and hold down the switch for the duration of the operation.

Additionally the top can be operated from the original key from remote. A quick key combination on the remote is all that is needed to start a full automatic top cycle. While the top is still opening, SmartTOP customers can get in and start driving. No changes are necessary to either the key remotes or the receiver system.

Other than the two main features mentioned above, the SmartTOP comes with a host of configurable bonus features: All windows can be simultaneously and fully automatically closed via the “all windows” switch. An “extended mode” allows turning the ignition on or off while an ongoing top operation is allowed to continue. Turning off the ignition can be set to unlock the doors. The passenger mirror can be programmed to dip down in reverse gear. A safety feature can be activated that blinks the hazard blinkers during remote activated top operation.

The entire module can be deactivated temporarily while retaining all other user configurable settings. The module comes with a standard USB port for quick and easy firmware updates via PC or Mac as well as computer based configuration of the module user settings. Support software and firmware updates are available online and free of charge.

A plug-in-between wiring adapter is part of the kit. It allows for a simple and easy installation of the SmartTOP module in the car by just connecting the module to the car electronics in two steps.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller kit for Volvo C70 is available for 249 Euros + tax. SmartTOP add-on kits are also available for 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.

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.
