Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.

Upon completion of our chat, you will be asked to rate my service. Please understand that this is the only way I am ever compensated by this site. Please do not rate me until you are completely satisfied. It is in my best interest to completely fix your issue so that I may be compensated.

Ok then. Here we go.

The 9400 does not have the capability of traffic alerts. It DOES have the capability to warn of speed and red light cameras. This is free for one year, then a subscription is required. You can read about the subscription HERE

Please let me know if I can help you further.

I thank you in advance.
