• Press "Define" (blue-shift "x t theta n" key). This lets you define a function with arguments.
• Name your function DM (decimal minutes) (for example).
• Enter A + B/60 for the function definition.
• Press ok as appropriate.
Now, whenever you enter DM(7,16.5) it will evaluate to 7.275. At any point in a calculation, if you want to enter degrees and decimal minutes, just type DM with the appropriate arguments and (if the calculator is in degrees mode) it will all work.

Awesome! Thanks Nigel.

This looks like a good solution for what I need.

I haven't used the Define feature before so I wasn't famiiliar with it. But it looks like it's just what I need.

Thanks again. I appreciate it. You've just saved me from a massive headache
