Angle input? - Amer7 - 12-29-2020 05:13 PM

How do I input angle in this format?
168.88827° to get -> 168°53'17,77" ?
On all calculators i would 168.88827 + DMS + EXE/Enter and it would convert to 168°53'17,77"
When i input 168.88827 + Shift+ a b/c + Enter i get syntax error..

I have consulted the manual.

You need (in Home mode):

168.88827 <Enter> <Shift> <a b/c>

Since the ->HMS function on that key only works on a numerical result.

If you use that key whilst entering a number, it inserts the HMS symbols.
