Trolling motor question

I currently have a Minn Kota with remote. Anyone have any experience with the motor guide xi5? My biggest concern with the minnkota is the sounds that it makes. Every time you steer the gear sounds are loud enough to spook fish especially when you are in very shallow water. The beeping sounds when you increase the power is also very annoying. Does anyone have a motor guide xi5? Is it as quiet as they advertise? Thanks
