The -2002+ calculator combines the usual desktop basic calculator functions with an Euro currency conversion. The exchange rate between the Euro and the Home currency is entered with the small SET-key. Two additional keys allow the conversion in both directions. The -2002+ followed soon the -2002 and added a feature to set the number of decimal places (for the curious, you have to press the ON/C key about two seconds to enter the F-0-2 menu).

A more sophisticated approach could be found in the -1796 and -2003, these calculators got the 11 different exchange rates preprogrammed. If you need printing functions, choose among the -2004, -2005, -2006 and -5032.
