tons of posts about this question in the search, wifi only ipads have no gps but thats ok for normal flying becaue the drone has gps. no gps on the ipad just means the drone doesnt know where your standing if you moved since taking off so no way to change the home point to your RC spot. on p3s it also means no follow me again since the drone cant tell where your rc is located. p4s have a better way to follow so not a biggie for you. maps can be stored in advance, or use a perosnal hotspot for internet.What benefits do the wifi/cellular units have over the wifi only unit?
I’m curious. Which of the optional features do you personally use often enough to make having GPS on your iPad worth the added cost?The ipad mini 4 with cellular/wifi has GPS and the wifi-only does not. With that said, you do not have to purchase a data plan to use the GPS. That's what I do. So paying a little more upfront will save you in monthly costs in the long run.
I use this ipad not just for droning but in my personal life as well. The GPS is great as a navigator in the car as it is larger than a cell phone and I like to look around a map esp if I'm lost!I’m curious. Which of the optional features do you personally use often enough to make having GPS on your iPad worth the added cost?
Note that I am fully aware of which optional features are enabled, so I’m not asking for that info. There are already hundreds of such posts. I’m just curious which of the features you use enough if you’re willing to share.
