New Design SmartTOP Peugeot 307 CC and 308 CC

The new design make the SmartTOP smaller and slimmer and thereby easier to install in tight locations in the car. Two LEDs show status information and aid during the install process.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controllers offered by aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars provide simple and easy roof controls for convertibles. On Peugeot 307 CC and 308 CC the product allows opening and closing of the top while the car is moving, up to 40 km/h (~28mph). Thanks to the one-touch operation, the top switch only needs to be tapped once. It is no longer necessary to pull over and hold the switch down for the entire time.

Additionally the top can be controlled from the original key fob remote by issuing a key combination. This makes it possible to open the top before getting in the car. Vice versa it is also possible to close the top from a distance at the first sign of impending rainfall. No changes are necessary to the original key fobs or receiver system.

Apart from these two main features, SmartTOP modules for Peugeot 307 CC and 308 CC also come with a few bonus features: Windows can be controlled separately from the top by remote. The “all windows” switch in the car can be made to close all windows with one-touch convenience. And a windows comfort feature allows the driver to still operate all windows for up to 60 seconds after turning the ignition off. An extended mode can be activated which allows the top to continue running while the engine is being started or stopped. The entire module can be deactivated temporarily while retaining all user configurable settings.

All features of the module can be configured according to individual needs. Configuration of the module is extremely simple in the center display in the dash to show a clear text setup menu which shows all functions and settings of the top module in an easy to understand way.

It is now about 30% smaller and can be fitted easily in tight spaces in the car. Additionally there are two LEDs now that show status and troubleshooting information in order to make installation simple and straight forward.

The SmartTOP modules come equipped with a standard USB port. This port allows quick and easy configuration of the module via Mac or PC as well as firmware updates. Support software and updates are available free of charge online. The kit comes with a full plug-and-play wiring adapter harness for quick and simple connection of the module to the car electronics. No wires need to be cut or spliced, no soldering is necessary and everything can later be removed without leaving any damage or trace.

SmartTOP kits by Mods4cars are available for the following popular brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.

About Toplift

Toplift was founded 1998 with the idea to supply hardtop lifts to Convertible and Roadster owners. Over the years, we found that Convertible and Roadster owners have special needs also in other areas, such as windbockers, controlling the roof and windows operation, Convertible Top care products and Hardtop Lifts. As the Convertible or Roadster owner in general have great passion for their car, common needs are found with other owners with great passion for their vehicles, such as tailored and individual floor mats or car covers. Common for all the products that Toplift offer is that they should be “top of the range” in terms of quality and fitting and ability to customize.

The main markets for Toplift are the Nordic Countries (Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland), but customers all over Europe are very welcome.
