    Hi,
    Hope to get an ipad mini 3 when it come out. I understand the wifi version doesn't have GPS chip and I'll hopefully be using an offline map application (maps me?)...so looks like I'll have to get a cellular version and not get a data plan.

    My question is, can I still use the GPS aspect in the cell card circuit without having to have a data sim inserted to the ipad? Can't afford a data plan and very likely to be in areas with no wifi so can't rely on the wifi location service.
    Any help gratefully received.,
    Pusscat

    You can use a cellular iPad on WiFi and GPS without a cellular data plan or even without a SIM card in the holder.
