RE: Surveying and 400 degree circles.
For those curious about a "TURN" mode, see this article for why it would be quite useful to have such a mode: (geometry)

As a programmer I would also like to see a BRAD (binary radian) mode (with full circle = 256).

Yet another useful addition would be an AMIL (angular mil) mode. Since there are different standards for the latter (full circle = 6000, 6283, 6300, 6400), AMIL would use a user-selectable conversion factor. Perhaps, instead of AMIL one mode with a freely selectable factor would be even better as there are other units of angles as well, so a AUSR mode could catch them all (some examples: full circle = 4 (quad), 6 (Babylonian sextant), 24 (hour angle), 32 (point), 60 (hexacontade), 1/60 radian (diameter part), 600, 4000, 6000, 6283, 6300, 6400, 21600 (minute of arc), 1296000 (second of arc), ...).
