IPad mini question(s)

BossTone74 1,788 153 November 18, 2015 at 06:00 PM
Thinking about buying a used iPad mini (1) 32gb wifi cellular, for purposes of integrating it into my car and stereo system for music and GPS.

1. Does anyone know of a reliable expansion adapter to add more storage to house my music?
2. does the adapter have a pass through for charging at the same time?

Thanks

Sorry, I'm not familiar with extending storage on iOS (i didn't actually think it was possible), but a comment on your choice of hardware: I wouldn't use an iPad mini 1 at this point - slow and bad screen. It barely supports the latest OS update. the guts are iPad 2 (2011 model)

At least use an iPad mini 2. It's not that much more $ - you can catch them used or refurb pretty easily.

You can't easily expand storage on an ipad like you can on android. There's the camera connection kit / sd card adapters, but they won't work for things like maps or music. If you jailbreak there may be other options, but that's filled with all sorts of hassles. An android tablet may be a better choice if you do this at all.

No way to add physical storage to the iPad without jailbreaking it, and last time I check it was a huge hassle.i didn't even dare mess with it and I've been hacking computers and smart phones for years.

You can get a wireless hard drive (500 gb on up) and steam music and movies to the iPad wirelessly.

I am a pretty experienced jailbreaker, so that doesn't scare me.
I'm going to hold out for a 2nd gen iPad mini with cellular so I can utilize the gps. Thanks for the tips gents/ladies.

I'll let ya know what I find when I find it.
