Now that i would pay money to see! Lol!I agree that it would be nice to have a remote open option on the fob, but that's it. Other remote convertible tops are IR transmitters and you have to stand within a couple of feet from the car for it to work (i.e. mercedes SL and SLK hardtop series). I do believe this would be the firt RF transmitter to open the top from some distance... such as walking to your car from the office. It would be nice to have the car opening as I am walking to it.
OK. It'd be nice. but who am I kidding... not like I am going to slide down a pole, run to the car (as it is opening) hop over the door and land in the seat while tossing my work items in the back to quickly speed off to save lives... when... I'm just going home.
Nah... I'm fine.
(still, ups on the cool factor)
Here in Australia VW is fitting a Bluetooth Phone kit to Golf, Jetta and Passat. The Eos has not been released yet, it is due next Month. I haven't been able to get many details from the Dealer (What a surprise )I was also getting ready to purchase the bluetooth adapter and CAN bus interface unit that lets the "phone" steering wheel button be used to control bluetooth phones... but, it has the same warranty-voiding limitations as the top controller.
I have four dealers within a "close" range of my home. I talked to all their service managers directly. Every single one said that if a non-factory component was connected to the bus, that I'd risk voiding warranties on any factory part that depended on that bus. (windows, roof, radio, trunk release, etc etc etc)
Oh, did I mention that I have a roof controller for sale? <cough cough> lol
still, gotta love the EOS. Amazing bit of work (even without the bluetooth and remote top control)
Hi Laura,Ive tried putting my roof up moving along in traffic. You cant put the roof up at any speed at all....Have to be stationary
