Nope!

Apple has different logic boards for the WiFi only Vs the cellular/WiFi units. The needed chips are not on the WiFi only model.

You can add an external GPS, like the ones from Bad Elf.

I’m no expert on the subject, and I am here because I was pondering the procedure as well. Dan’s response leads me to another question. If you were to procure a “for parts only” iPad mini of the same generation and transfer from it, the gps antenna and logic board, would that circumvent the roadblock? I think it would be possible as long as the hardware wasn’t iCloud locked. But again, this is merely a presumption of mine.
