I drove the very impressive new Volvo XC60 crossover to Detroit and back this past Monday.
(Road test coming soon).
On the way back over the Blue Water Bridge at Sarnia, the nice SatNav lady in the dashboard said, "Welcome to Canada!"
Isn't that cool?
I don't recall her welcoming me to the United States earlier in the day. Wonder if there's anything to be made of that?
Oh, BTW - if you travel frequently out of Canada and don't have a NEXUS card, what are you waiting for?
At vehicle border crossings, you just hold up the card, a machine interprets it, and off you go. No line-ups, no passport, Bob's Your Uncle.
At airports, it's even cooler. A special camera takes a picture of your eyeballs, matches the irises against the data base in what is an incredible feat of computer processing - it takes about a second - spits out a card, and through customs you go.
It costs $50 (US or CDN; best exchange rate anywhere). Cheap as dirt, if you put any value on your own time at all.
Google "NEXUS CARD" to find all the details.
