    My windshield broke 2017 base model in Canada
    Is there anything to watch out for can anyone do the replacement ? Is there any calibrating needed for the cam/sensor ?
    I was quoted $450 CAD from a reputable windshield repair place.

    Toyota have a special windshield so that the HUD will work properly - it needs to be able to reflect off the windshield without giving you a double image.

    On your trim, I don't think you have HUD or rain sensor, but the front-facing camera needs to be calibrated. It is not difficult and I have read that some glass places can perform this. Make sure your glass shop can do it. If not, you may have to take your car to a Toyota dealer to have the camera calibrated, but it may cost you a lot more than the glass shop will charge you. I had my 2017 Prius Prime windshield replaced, and the Toyota dealer charged me 150USD for the calibration alone. However, my insurance paid for all.
