Types of windshield camera recalibration
When you make an appointment with STG, you’ll be alerted if the vehicle needs recalibration services after a replacement. At the time of your appointment, a STG technician trained in recalibration will complete the recalibration required by your vehicle. Different manufacturers require either a static or dynamic process and for some vehicles, both are required.
- Dynamic Recalibration – Requires driving the vehicle at a set speed on well-marked roads to recalibrate the camera system. Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
- Static Recalibration – Requires a specific target image mounted on a fixture in front of the vehicle during the recalibration process. Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
