I purchased a WiFi only iPad mini 4 to use with my Mavic Pro Platinum. I then read about no gps with WiFi only mini 4. I returned WiFi only and purchased a WiFi + Cellular . My question is (I searched everywhere first) can I still use WiFi connection and have access to the gps or does the gps hardware only work with Cellular?

Your Mavic has a perfectly good GPS receiver that it uses for all flight functions.
There are only two features that can use the GPS in your iPad.
These are Follow-me flight and resetting the home point to the current location of the controller (sometimes used if you fly from a moving car or boat).
Apart from those, there is nothing else the Mavic will use the iPad's GPS for.
