    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.
