Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) Aiming Procedure Change – 2017 Mazda3 & Mazda6

2017 Mazda3, 2017 Mazda6 – Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) Aiming Procedure Change

The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) Aiming procedure has changed for the 2017 Mazda3 and 2017 Mazda6. The new aiming procedure can be performed dynamically or statically.


Dynamic Aiming

MNAO recommends performing the dynamic aiming procedure because of its simplicity.

Note: If the dynamic aiming (mid-driving aiming) procedure cannot be performed (due to bad weather, darkness, etc.), perform the static aiming (stationary aiming) procedure.


Static Aiming Changes (table below shows a few examples of the changes)
