The iPad mini 2 and 3 are EXACTLY the same hardware - the only difference is the fingerprint sensor on the three.

Smart money buys the iPad mini 2.

Even smarter Money buys the same from the apple refurb store with the edu discount code :)

iPad Mini 2 with cellular has GPS, iPad Mini 2 with Wifi only has NO GPS.

Do we need the cellular version for GPS, or can we simply buy an iPad that does not support GPS? I'm asking because there is some confusion whether the Inspire transmitter has GPS built-in or not (some sources say yes, some say no).

I bought 2 iPad Mini 2 Wifi Only devices a month ago for the Inspire, hopefully I did not screw myself over! I was simply assuming that all iPads have GPS, but I forgot Apple are a bunch of retards (who would build a tablet without GPS!!!).

Likewise - got 2 iPad Mini 2's without cellular when they were on sale and with Marriott points. I've seen Tahoe Ed and Blade Strike on RC Group forum and DJI reps on DJI forums confirm you do not need a tablet with cellular capability. Hope this helps.

I have an LG-G 8.3 tablet on a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC with 2GB of RAM. I'm still uncertain if the USB on this thing is compatible with how the RC connects.

Mini 2. As said above, the Mini 3 is EXACTLY the same as the 2 but has the fingerprint sensor. If the fingerprint sensor is worth $100 to you then get the 3. Everyone else should get the 2.

You DO NOT need an iPad with GPS, simply preload the maps when your on wifi
