Hello, browsed around a little bit and didn't find the answer I was looking for. I ordered a wifi only ipad mini for my parents for Christmas, thinking they could use it along with their Verizon mifi portable hotspot for turn by turn navigation in their RV. Then I started seeing in various forums that the wifi only iPads don't have GPS, so it might not work. I went in to the Apple store and spoke with an associate who assured me this combo would work, and after handling the ones in the store it appears that it would, but I just want to make sure. If it won't work, I would like to return the ipad unopened when I receive it.
Is anyone doing this and having it work? In short, I need to know that as long as the ipad has a strong wifi signal coming to it that it will keep providing turn by turn directions? If it does work, do the new wifi only ipad minis have GPS in them, or are they still lacking it? If they don't have GPS, how is it able to work? Thanks for any input.
