Just purchased the 9500ix and had it hard wired. In reveiwng the manual there is a section dealing with SWS:
How SWS Works
Safety Warning System, or SWS, uses a
modified K-band radar signal. The SWS
safety radar system has 64 possible
messages (60 currently allocated). The
SWS messages your PASSPORT can display
are listed on the facing page.
From the factory, your PASSPORT is
programmed with SWS decoding OFF. If
you wish to detect this system, use the
Preferences feature to turn PASSPORTís
SWS decoding ON. If SWS is used in your
area, your PASSPORT will display the
safety messages associated with the signal.
Where do you go in PREFERENCES to use this feature?
