    So to settle my noob brain.................If I download an app, say TOmTom, switch off wi fi, switch off my data I would be able to use it as a GPS without any data usage? Actually the dude in Best Buy said I could but as the Ipad mini is a bit pricey, I wanted to be sure. you guys make me quite confident that it will work for me. Thanks guys!!!!!

    Yes that is correct. I selected CoPilot Live as my automotive GPS app. I find it not as "refined" as my Garmin standalone GPS, but the large display is great and it works pretty well.

    Believe me, you do not need a data connection for this to work. I do it all the time. Download your maps before you set out and you're good to go.

    +1 to Intilliza, I find my Garmin much easier to use as is my TomTom. I have no eyesight problems as does the OP who advises he is on the older side. I'm only 70 and have no such problems.
    If my Irish Wolfhound doesn't like you neither will I.
