    Since you use an iOS device already and asked about GPS, check out this post for more info to help with your tablet research.

    Nvidia shield k1 tablet by far the best tablet for $199. It has an hdmi output and gps module with a beast of a processor.

    I was using an nVidia Shield K1 but the Android 6.0 upgrade broke the compass and power management. Instead of going back to Android 5, I returned it to Amazon and got an iPad Mini 4. I love the iPad, especially Auto Pilot for DJI on the iPad.

    You just bought the best 350mm drone available. If you want the best display, the iPad Air2 with 64GB and cellular support is the best IMHO. I've never had an issue. It's the largest display you can fit into the RC display clip. BTW, you'll want to buy the Inspire aluminum RC display clip, if you want the best, it's stronger, wobbles less.

    iPad Air 2 without question. If you plan to use IOC get a cellular version. I was in your shoes not very long ago and followed RHPs advice. I recommend you stay away from a mini as the extra screen really helps.
