ST6001+ Beeps Every 30 Seconds in Wind Vane Mode

My ST6001+ beeps every 30 secs in wind vane mode. It doesn't beep every 30 secs in any other mode and it is exactly every 30 seconds. It doesn't seem to affect performance but does anyone know what's going on here ?

Yeah, we only have wind vane mode occasionally as we need a new speed transducer... but I think th ebeeping is when it detects a wind change. It was a little annoying and that was in the trade winds. If I had the damn think here it would be constantly beeping!
