Your favourite iPad is a truly superior tool. You can be in touch with your social circles, capture and share photos and video, surf the web, and use it in place of your PC anywhere, be it for work or fun.
If you have chosen the Wifi + Cellular version of the iPad Mini, then your device integrates a GPS antenna. This means that you can use it as a means of navigation in the city or the countryside.
What is a GPS antenna?
It is the component responsible for receiving and processing the GPS satellite signal. Your tablet is constantly bombarded with raw data from satellites via the GPS antenna, it analyzes them doing complex synchronization steps, calculates its distance from each satellite, and by combining this information, it deduces your exact location with jaw-dropping accuracy!
Thus, you know your position on the map at any time, where to make a turn, and how much time it will take you to reach your destination. All this, in a tiny piece of hardware!
