• 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.

As an alternative I suggest to define DM like this:

→HMS(IP(X)+(FP(X)*5/3))

Usage: DM(7.165) returns 7°16′30″
