Just noticed a small windshield crack les than the size of a quarter. Any advise on repair before I explore complete replacement. I have cameras and other sensors mounted to the car since it has drive assist/ PreSafe pakage

If it's a star in the windshield, contact your insurance company. Many auto insurers will repair, if it can be repaired, and charge you nothing.
Me personally would prefer a repair than a replacement, if it can be repaired.

+1.

I had a repair done on the wife's ML a few months ago. Safelite does a very nice job, but don't go in with the expectation that the crack will *completely* disappear. They pressure-fill it with a resin that maintains the integrity of the glass, and keeps the crack from spreading further. It WON'T make the existing crack go away *entirely*, though it does look much better (and is far less noticeable). YMMV.
