    • Degrees-minutes-seconds (e.g., 52.9.8)
    • Hours-minutes-seconds (e.g., 5:21:50)
    • Minutes-seconds (e.g., 125:32)
    • Fractions (e.g., 14-9/125, 32-1/2 kg)
  • User-selectable inch fraction denominator (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, or 1000)
  • Converts among and computes with over 30 different units (ft, m, lb, yd3, etc.), including both English/Imperial and SI/Metric units
  • Computes directly with dimensional values (e.g., 70 lb/ft3 x 5 yd3 = 9450 lb)
  • Currency conversions with update of exchange rates over the Internet. Supports 12 currencies.
Keypads and Entry Logic
  • Algebraic and RPN entry modes (user selectable)
  • Allows entry of feet-inches-fractions using the decimal key. For example, to enter 4' 3-21/32", you would press [4] [.] [3] [.] [2] [1]
  • Allows entry of any denominator (after entering numerator, just press [.] to enter a new denominator)
  • Dedicated buttons for picking the units that you use most often (you can assign the units that you want to these buttons)
Display Options
  • Choice of display precision, including fixed decimal places or significant figures
  • Option to reduce inch fractions to the least common denominator or leave them unreduced (e.g., 1/2" vs 16/32")
  • Option to show or not show a zero before inch fractions (e.g., 5' 0-3/4" vs 5' 3/4")
Additional Features
  • "Paperless tape" that keeps your last 20 entries (you can also recall tape values to the main display)
  • Memory with 5 locations - all support store, recall, add (M+), and subtract (M-)
  • Advanced math function keys including triginometric, logarithmic, and power functions
  • Easy input and editing, including backspace and ability to click the main display value to re-enter edit mode
  • Ability to print and/or save Solver results (Windows version only)
  • Automatically stores display, stack, tape, and memory values when the software shuts down and restores these values when you restart the calculator
