Installing a new windshield can have a direct impact on your vehicle’s safety features, including lane departure warnings, lane keep assist and collision mitigation breaking systems.
These safety features – known as advance driver-assistance system (ADAS) features – often rely on cameras that are mounted on your vehicle’s windshield. When you replace the windshield, it’s important to make sure these items are properly calibrated so they continue to work properly.
At Lee & Cates, we know how important these features are for keeping you and your passengers safe. That’s why we use Opti-Aim, the first aftermarket tool that properly calibrates the cameras on your vehicle.
Produced by Pilkington, Opti-Aim is able to calibrate these cameras by plugging into your vehicle and properly positioning each camera these safety features rely on. This means your vehicle’s ADAS technology remains reliable and up-to-date.
While your current vehicle may not have these safety features, there’s a good chance your next one will. The number of cars that use ADAS features has grown 300% over the past six years and is projected to increase another 44% by 2020. That’s why it’s important to know which windshield installers are able to calibrate these features.
If your vehicle has ADAS features and needs a new windshield, bring it in to Lee & Cates and we’ll make sure everything is properly installed. To schedule an appointment, contact your nearest Lee & Cates location.
