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].
To convert from DMS to DD and from DD to DMS, you use the sequence [2nd][Apps][4:|=>DMS].
You have a key, the label of which is the degree sign, the apostrophe
