Well, as evident by this photo, I strolled out into the road and at 34 (long) paces, my SmartTop function as designed, the windows operate AND the TOP will function open or closed. This was from a distance of approximately 100 feet. I don't know if it will operate from farther away, and I actually didn't expect it to operate from this distance. I knew I had operated the top from a good distance away, just never bothered to determine that distance. Early 2012 model.

At the office I park in the nether reaches of the parking lot, so I've tried from various long distances with no luck, so I guess I need more practice.

Maybe it has something to do with the angle of approach? I'm approaching from the left rear at nearly a right angle to the car. Maybe the antenna coverage is not so good there?

Everything is better when approached from the rear....

But you have smart top! We were talking about CA stock. I am not surprised to see smart top fixes that limitation as well.
