According to some automakers, camera recalibration is necessary after the replacement of a windshield, and should be made at one of their dealerships. Is this true or false?

This is false. As a matter of fact, in 2012, the Dutch advertising code authority ordered a car manufacturer (Volvo) to retract this declaration and recognize not just dealers but technicians (like those at Speedy Glass®) as capable of safely replacing windshields that come with a camera.

What are the advanced driver-assistance system components that can be impacted during a windshield replacement?
Advanced driver-assistance systems and cameras are connected through the vehicle’s windshield. Data pertaining to traffic and road environment are captured by the cameras. It should be expected that a camera that has not been recalibrated after the replacement of a windshield can result in poor performance.
Speedy Glass® professionals are expertly trained to use today’s technology and patented tools. When a windshield that features a driver- assistance system is replaced, the camera is recalibrated and fitted onto the new windshield.1 The camera power is not turned off during a windshield replacement.
