Default starmate 4 with fm mod - strange sound?

I installed a starmate 4 in my truck using the sirius direct fM relay, and whenever the unit turns initially, there's always a sequence of 3 electronic chirps/beeps that are audible over the speakers, followed by the start of whatever music is playing on the channel on my unit. Does anyone hear this with their units? Is this normal? I have had a Kenwood Here2anywhere, and i have a Visor in another car, and neither one makes this sound upon turn - on.

If you think the start up sounds are weird, turn it off before turning off the car.

High end toys make high end noise There's probably a way to turn off the sounds but they haven't bothered me enough to find out how.

There nis a way to turn it off - in the menu, it's the notification alarm. It gets rid of the start up/turn off noise, but no alarm sounds when the artist/song search occurs.
