Why You Need a Windshield Recalibration
Mesa, AZ Windshield Recalibration

If you're wondering what this camera does for your vehicle, that's a great question. Through a range of systems and safety measures, your vehicle has a range of capabilities. One of the main features is to prevent collisions. This will pop up differently depending on the make and model of the vehicle. The calibration of cameras speak to your car through sensors and gives you warnings. These warnings are designed to alert you to potential risks or hazards. If you wander on the road, your car might beep to alert you from driving off the side of the road. Other features impacted are collision avoidance, pedestrian or other vehicles nearby, lane keep assist, emergency braking, and much more.
This service takes your vehicle to well-marked roads and uses those lines and particular speed settings to dynamically recalibrate your vehicle. The combination is crucial to getting your camera to recognize where it needs to be on the roadway. These safety parameters are what give your onboard camera system the direction it needs and is what alerts you when the parameters are outside of those safety measures. This takes about an hour or more to do, which is all depending on your vehicles' make and model.
Another way we recalibrate your car, truck, or SUV's cameras is through static recalibration. A static recalibration is when there is a fixed target mounted at the front of the vehicle. This ensures that your system recognizes the targets necessary to keep you on the road and what should and shouldn't be in front of you. This takes the depth of field into account and how your car relates to objects. Depending on your make of car, truck, or SUV, this service can take about an hour or longer for a static recalibration.
