Tech/Engineering / Navigation System
English term or phrase: fi
When you connect this product to the Navigation System below, a 3.5 fi converter jack is required.

I have no idea what fi stands for.
Any suggestions?

Thanks.

we could be talking here about electric and magnetic fields (intensité des champs magnétiques ou électromagnétiques) régulés par le convertisseur et je laisserai le symbole en anglais AMA

Ils m'ont demandé de laisser '3.5 fi' parce que c'est un signal.
