Las Vegas, Nevada – March 12th, 2013
The SmartTV video-in-motion unlock module by Mods4cars is available effective immediately for the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class, SLK and SL Convertibles. The add-on kit bypasses the driving restriction on video playback and allows passengers to enjoy DVD or TV playback on long road trips.
“Our SmartTV controller is a well thought out, professional hardware solution for enabling video playback while the car is moving.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. A quick key combination on the multifunction steering wheel is enough to enable or disable the module. Since this is a hardware solution and not just software coding, the functionality is permanent and stays in place even after dealer software updates usually done during routine inspection.
Additionally the module
is equipped with a standard USB port, which allows firmware updates offered by Mods4cars free of charge to be applied to the module at any time. This makes the kit a future-proof investment and lets users keep it up to date.
The SmartTV module is compatible with all new Mercedes-Benz Convertibles such as E-Class, SL (R231) and SLK (R172). The same kit also works in C-Class, E-Class, CL-Class, CLS-Class, S-Class, ML-Class, GL-Class, GLK-Class, R-Class and Vito models.
SmartTV modules are available for Bentley, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Skoda and Volkswagen starting at 149 Euros + tax.
