Use the key above the ENG key to enter a value in DMS form, ending each portion with the key. To convert it to decimal, press SD once (or twice if you get a fraction the first time).

### HOW DO YOU USE THE DEGREES MINUTE SECONDS FUNCTION

Hello,
To convert an angle from degrees (decimal degrees) to the sexagesimal notation (deg, min, seconds) use the key [DMS] the one between [(-) and [hyp].
Everytime you press the key, the displayed result is cast in the other form
EX; 12.58 [DMS] gives 12 deg 34 min 48 sec.
Suggestion: If you are doing many calculations with the sexagesimal format, use the decimal degree format, and only when you find the final result do you convert it to DMS.
Hope it helps.

Hello,
In the main menu screen press the Action menu, then Transformation submenu. At the bottom of the drop down list you have dms an toDMS.
If you enter toDMS(18.58) you get dms(18,34,48). Then if you use dms( on the calculated result: dms(ans) you get 18.58
So if you have a result in deg, min, sec you convert it to decimal degrees by making use of the dms( command.

Hope it helps.
