Try this: use X-CTU to reprogram both of the Xbee modules to 9600 baud and then change the baud rate in your Fio sketch to 9600 for the serial port and also 9600 for the software serial port (it’s easier and less confusing if everything uses the same rate). I’ve had trouble in the past with some of my Xbee units printing garbled text to the Arduino board at higher baud rates, so perhaps that’s where your mystery characters are coming from.
