About to purchase a 9.7" iPad to use with X-Plane. Are there benefits to getting the cellular capable model which also includes GPS? Specs say includes: assisted GPS and GLONASS. I hear that the GPS is active even if we don't activate a cellular account. Note: the WiFi only iPads don't have the built in GPS.

Hi, for X-plane, the GPS&cellular option of the Ipad is useless.

If ever you intend to use your ipad for real aviation too, then the Ipad mini has more appropriate dimentions and the GPS&cellular otion is very useful.
