Calibration Guide

Proper calibration is important for accurate performance. Our Calibration Steps offer simple instructions to ensure that your device provides precise data on your swing, ball speed, and more.

N1 Calibration Program

To open the N1 Calibration app, please double click the N1 Calibration shortcut on your desktop. Conversely, you can find the app in your hard drive by opening File Explorer and navigating to C:\Program Files\NVisage\Pio\Tools\N1Calibration.exe

When you first open the N1 Calibration app, you should see an empty home page, looking like this:


If your N1 unit is on and you successfully completed the configuration in the prior steps, pressing the Play button will immediately provide you with a video feed of your hitting area, similar to this:


If this is your first time using your N1 unit, or the N1 unit has moved locations since its last use, you’ll need to calibrate the unit for the hitting space. In order to begin configuring your unit, click on the Calibration button on the top toolbar. A popup containing instructions will appear, like this:


Place the included calibration board perpendicular to the N1 unit, with the end notated “Screen” facing towards the N1 unit. Using the red circle and blue orientation line, make sure that the center of the “bullseye” on the calibration board is within the red circle on your screen, and that the calibration board is straight and parallel to the blue line, as shown here:


Once the calibration board, is placed, press the “Calibrate (A)” button on the calibration popup to begin auto-calibration: 


If prompted, select “RIGHT” when asked for a Sensor Location: 


If calibration is successful, you’ll see a popup notating that the calibration was successful, and the calibration window will automatically close. 


You’ll then be brought back to the home screen, with your calibration board still fully in view:


Place one of the 12 included “four dot” marked golf balls approximately where the “bullseye” of the calibration board was located, facing at least one group of dots towards the N1 unit:


Now we’re ready to test our shot! Click “Shot Test” on the top toolbar and you’ll immediately be asked “Are you testing with a putter?”

 If you are about to putt with a putter, click Yes. If you are about to swing with a club aside from a putter, click No.

 Once you’ve selected your option, the N1 unit will look for the ball in the hitting area. When the N1 unit finds a ball, you’ll see a green READY indicator at the top left and there will be a circle around your ball, like this:


Once a shot is read, the shot data will appear on-screen, like so:


Your N1 unit is now ready to read another shot. Simply set an NVISAGE marked ball within the ready zone to set up another shot.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why am I losing the connection between the N1 and my computer when my computer goes to sleep?

The most common issue you’re likely to experience is the connection between the N1 unit and your computer going to sleep after long periods of inactivity. Pressing the “Reconnect” and “Play” buttons within the N1 Calibration app are a good first step to re-initializing that connection. In some cases, you may need to close the N1 Calibration app and restart it, after verifying that your N1 unit is powered on and connected.

Why am I having trouble connecting to my golf simulator software?

You may intermittently notice issues when connecting to GSPro or E6. More often than not, this is due to the order of the steps that need to be completed. Review the steps in the above section Using your NVISAGE N1 With GSPro and E6 Connect, making sure they’re completed in that order, and try again.
