Use the DMS key marked degree, apostrophe, double quotation mark.

Lets us call it [DMS]

To enter an angle in degree minutes seconds or hour, minutes, seconds, type in the number of degrees, press the [DMS] key, enter the number of seconds, press the [DMS] key, enter the number of seconds then the [DMS] key. Press = the calculator displays the value in DMS units. If you press the DMS key again the number displayed is converted to decimal degrees.

Example:enter 12 degrees, 15 minutes, and 25 seconds

12 [DMS]15[DMS]25[DMS] =

Calculator displays 12 deg 15'25"

Press the DMS key again and you see 12.2569444

The DMS symbols are available under the ANGLE menu

Press [2nd][APPS] (ANGLE)

Under that menu you find the degree and minute symbol. To enter the seconds unit you use the key sequence [ALPHA][+] (")

To enter 1deg 15 minutes and 37 seconds

1 [2nd][APPS] [1:deg] 15[2nd][Apps][2:'] 37 [ALPHA] [+]

To enter a number in decimal degrees (eg 15.37)

Press [2nd][APPS] (ANGLE)

Under that menu you find the degree and minute symbol. To enter the seconds unit you use the key sequence [ALPHA][+] (")

To enter 1deg 15 minutes and 37 seconds

1 [2nd][APPS] [1:deg] 15[2nd][Apps][2:'] 37 [ALPHA] [+]

To enter a number in decimal degrees (eg 15.37)

- If angle unit is the degree just enter 15.37
- If angle unit is the radian , you must specify the angle unit as degrees: To enter 15.37 degrees you type 15.37 [2nd][Apps][1: degree] [ENTER].

You have a key, the label of which is the degree sign, the apostrophe
and the double quotation mark. It is located between the change sign
key (-) and the [HYP] key.

To enter an angle with degrees, minutes and seconds you use the key to separate between numbers

Ex: 18 deg 0' 45" you press 18 [Deg ' "] 0 [Deg ' "]45 [Deg ' "] [=] As you type the calculator displays 18 deg 0 deg 45 deg but the result will show correctly. You have to press the key after the seconds figure, otherwise you get a syntax error.

While the foregoing result is still in answer memory, if you press the [Deg ' "] key the result will be displayed in decimal degrees.

The key is used to enter the DMS values and also to toggle between DMS and D.D.
