I want to be able to use "Follow Me" mode with my IPad Mini 4 - it does not have cellular capability. I see in Phantom Help there are 4 GPS Receivers. However the Garmin model does not ship to New Zealand. Which one would be the best most suitable GPS receiver and be good value for money? I notice that some have a dual function ie. GPS and Glonas. What does Glonas do?

I don't know the exact differences but Glonas is also a GPS satelite system that functions separately from regular GPS. The Phantom itself uses both for positioning.

GPS is the US GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System). GLONASS is the equivalent Russian GNSS. Receiver that use both will see more satellites and generally get a better position fix.
