Interest in a One-Touch Convertible button?

I love the idea of a one-touch switch but....

...the plastic back window in by 2000 S is happiest when I put the top half way down and 'chop' the window so it does not crease. Hence, a one-touch wouldn't currently do me any good.

i did do the pin 18 hack last summer and am very happy with it.

Would you buy it for putting the top back up? Or would the product be useless to you?

Thanks for the responses everyone!

I have a one touch button in my '02 that I bought from another forum member years back. I still need to stop it on the way down (to chop), but the one touch is nice for putting it back up. Is it worth the $100 I paid back then? Doubtful, but it was something I "thought" I had to have.

The prototype was a success! The poduct will be called Robo-Top!

I will place an order for the production batch tomorrow and I'll hopefully have the product in my hands and ready to sell by next Monday, but that depends on the manufacturer's shipping.

The website will be ready and released to you guys this Saturday.

I most likely would not buy the piece to 'one touch' my top back up as I still have to latch by hand.

Best of luck to you though!

I'd definitely be interested in this. All it would have to do is be a one-touch operation to raise or lower the top. It should stop the raise/lower process if the button is touched again. I can get around the hand-brake and speed limits if I want with the easy mod to the existing top relay. I'd pay under $100.

The boards were ordered this past week. Depending on the manufacture's production schedule and shipping time, it should be around 2 weeks until I will be able to sell.

I will release the website at that time.

I currently have the product operating in my car and I LOVE it.

I'm looking forward to the release of Robo-Top!

Boards came in a few days ago. They will be assembled more than likely on Tuesday.

Robo-Top units will be available sometime later this week!

I'll release the website and details then!

As a new owner of a '99 996 convertible, I am interested in this, and looking forward to install this mod....

Highlow, i checked your website but i only want to buy it if i can open it when i drive without the need to put the parkingbrake on ...so i guess its not for me..

Me to or will it work with the handbreak hack?

also, how much does this rely on the existing top stop switch circutry/logi. Mine is sort of screwy.

Regards, PK

If the handbreak hack is the same thing as this: onetouchporsche.com/moving, then it will work.

I'm not sure which part of your top switch isn't acting correctly so it's hard for me to say what will happen. I can tell you that Robo-Top runs off it's own microprocessor.
