I am looking to upgrade from my Iphone 6 to a tablet for my Phantom 4.  I am looking at the Ipad Mini.  I know I need to make sure any choice has WiFi and Cellular.  Your recommendations appreciated for best tablet that fits the Phantom 4 holder

Don't try with the earlier generations of the Mini. I would suggest Mini 4 or later. Why do you believe you need WIFI and cellular?

I usually use an iPad Pro 9.7".  I have also used an iPad Pro 12.9, but it is sometimes overkill on the size.  The iPad Pro 9.7 has the least screen glare by A LOT compared to other models.  I often use a iPad mini 4.  The mini 2 seems to under-perform.  The mini 3 and mini 4 have the same processor, but the glare on the mini 4 is much reduced from the mini 3.  For those reasons, the best mini to use is the mini 4.  But if you include ALL iPads, I'd choose the Pro 9.7".

I believe the Mini 2 and Mini 3 have the same specs except the fingerprint scanner. The Mini 4 was a significant step up from the 3.

Couldn't you use a iPAD 4 mini with Cellular - and never activate the cellular  - and use the GPS for the maps, so you don't have to by external gps like the Garmin Glo ?

I have a IPAD 4th gen A1458  that they just phased out and wont let me use with the app.  Too slow of processor - A6X I think.

'Why do you believe you need WIFI and cellular?'

Possibly because he wants to have the GPS functionality in the iPad.

Ah. That makes sense. I read it and assumed he believed those features were necessary even to use the device with the P4P.

Ipad pro + Garmin Glo works awesome for me. If I need wifi, I just enable my phone as a hotspot.

No.  The 3 and 4 are similar.  The 3 was a big step up from the 2.

Incorrect. Look at the specs on the page below. Only thing they really added was touch ID to the Mini 3. The Mini 4 was a big step up from the Mini 3.

Mini 2 vs Mini 3

The specs conclusion was:

"The iPad Mini 3 is not a vast improvement over the Mini 2. It’s  identical in nearly all aspects, from the last-gen processor to the  built-in camera, with a higher price tag to boot. Its sole appeal lies  in the Touch ID sensor, which isn’t all that enticing for most users."

Then, look at the Mini 3 vs Mini 4 specs and see the significant improvement (like the A7 running dual core at 1.3 GHz compared to A8 running dual core at 1.5 GHz):

Mini 3 vs Mini 4

Mini 3 has same processor as mini2, better bet for a longer life with the app updates is mini 4, plus it has a brighter screen. Only downside is costs more and is a tighter fit in the foam case. This question has been asked many times before, do a search and see the answers, some people recomend android over ios devices, its a never ending discussion
