Border Buddy is the must-have App for any border-crossing traveller.
Border Buddy provides the most up-to-date border wait times for the USA/Canada and USA/Mexico border crossings by combining both official wait times and real-time wait time information reported by actual border-crossing travellers.
See what the current gas prices are across the border! Gas prices are crowd-sourced, so make sure you report the latest prices when you fill up so you can help others.
Stay on the right side of the law by calculating how long you may be in the USA before you become unlawfully present or accidentally satisfy the IRS Substantial Presence Test.
Plan your shopping trip with the offline shopping directory! Download the shopping directory and you can view all the outlet and shopping malls in your area, including mall hours, list of stores, and offline maps - even when you are roaming without a data connection!
* Note: the offline directory and offline maps are currently only available for the Pacific Northwest region (Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle, and Portland). More regions will come in the future.
Use the handy price converter and see how much you are saving! You can also convert gas prices between US dollars per gallon and Canadian dollars (or Mexican pesos) per litre.
Check what you are allowed to bring back home with you after your travels with the handy Duty Free Allowance information page.

What's New in Version 3.5
Do you have travel medical insurance when you travel to the USA? If not, you should. Provincial health plans would cover very little if you were to get sick or injured while abroad.
Border Buddy now lets you store your insurance details for quick reference- just in case you need it.
Easy to use but not accurate
I've found that the current wait times are rarely accurate even when it says its been updated within 10 minutes. And a lot of times the wait times update only once every hour or longer. The average wait time section seems helpful but isn't realistic. The only thing that is helpful for me is the east access to the live video cameras of the border lines.
