LOL... sounds like a good deal if you have a Jeep and can pull the stumps

I have a Gen 2 (8 years old, still runs great, gave to one of the grandkids) and a mini, which is lighter and doesn't hurt as much when I fall asleep reading on it

I'd recommend the Mini.

I've already got an iPhone 6S+
Is the mini going to be much bigger than that?

Now that I'm getting older, I suffer from CSS

You can also switch the text size in any apple product to be bigger so you see it better... I know from experience

Trust me... On iPhone, I'm always zooming, unzooming, and double tapping.
Changing text size on iPhone doesn't play well with websites... For me anyway

I've done well, I hit 50 before I needed any type of glasses... And I went to 1.5 readers

My Huawei prepaid non-smart phone survived two days of rain on the side of the road. Two years later its never missed a beat. Best $30 I ever spent on a phone!
No internet on it at all but I have a nice setup at home for that.

the ipad air 2 is a great device.. I have bought every generation of iphone and ipad since they came out..(except the ipad pro) always the one with the cell modem.. even if you dont activate the Cell service, having the cellular version of the ipad gets you the true GPS chipset so you can use your offline GPS apps without using ceullular data...

I never activate the cell modem on my ipads i just wanted the GPS..

I have not bought an iPAD PRO as it seems no faster than the ipad air 2..

my first ones were 16 but i uppsed to 32 on later ones so I can have a couple different offline GPS stored.. since I only use the ipads for driving down the road.. (diagnostics, GPS, weather, Streaming Music) I didnt need lots of storage.. the 16's became a pain becaise it was hard to upgrade the OS without having to delete and reload. I believe my ipad air 2 is 64 just because its what they had in stock when I went to the apple store..

Never had a problem with the GPS on my Android tablet, which doesn't have a cell card.

some android tablets have GPS chipsets in them.. iPads dont without a cell modem..

theres a list of android tabs with GPS's somewhere on the net.. I had a vewsonic yers ago which had no cell modem but had a GPS..

the andrid dashboard in my smart car is the same way, no cell modem with GPS chips.

I have an iPad Air 2 with 32GB storage space. I love it. 32GB is plenty of storage. That's 7,000 songs worth of music, or up to 10,000 photos if you use it for that.
