The TI-37 Galaxy Solar added a usable display to the TI-35 Galaxy Solar. Instead of 5 digits for the mantissa you could now use 10 digits. Funny thing: The precision of calculations is worser than expected! The same calculator chip was used in the TI-36 Solar.
Difficult to understand is the reason why the same calculator was sold in Europe with the TI-52 Solar name plate.
We discovered three "calculator pairs" in the Galaxy series:
|TI-35 Galaxy||TI-30 Galaxy|
|TI-35 Galaxy Solar||TI-30 Galaxy Solar|
|TI-37 Galaxy Solar||TI-52 Solar|
In 1986 the design style of the TI-37 Galaxy Solar was slightly changed. View the "green" calculator here.
