It'll all be done on the Clip computer, so don't expect any shortcuts that you can do for yourself. If it's bothering you that much, then take it in and ask them to change it. An accommodating dealer (who wants your repeat service business) will probably do it for free.

But the beep is only brief and it's not that loud, and you'll come to rely on it to check that the car has actually locked itself (which, based on the two years that I've had this car, is far from guaranteed.) There's also the scenario where the keycard could drop out of your pocket and remain in the car, making it easy for the opportunist theif to get in and drive away. So always double-check that the car has locked itself, either by watching for the hazards flashing or listening out for the horn.

Sometimes, I think the handsfree card is more hassle than it's worth. If they'd let you lock the car with the card but subsequently unlock it handsfree, then that'd be perfect. It's a shame they didn't think of that.
