    Ok I use a iPad mini (wifi only) and now I find out that this device does not have GPS. Only the G3/4 iPads do.

    I want to take advantage of the new dynamic home point available in the new 3.8 firmware but can't. I need a GPS to work with IOS and the phantom app preferably via blue tooth, small enough to mount on my RC controller or easy to plug into my I pad mini.

    Any suggestions or help?

    Thanks

    The best solution is to buy a smarthome with gps or small type oftablet with gps. Every other solution will be very complicated and problaby also (in the end) more expensive.

    Bump up. There has to be another solution other than buying another device.

    Another reason alone why apple sucks. Why not stick a GPS switch in an iPad?

    Or instead of just Apple sucking how about DJI ? Why not have one in their transmitter ? Even the 3000$ inspire dosent have a GPS in their 600 $ transmitter

    Please do not divert this thread into an Apple vs. X.
