You'll want data for Google Maps/Navigation. Plus being able to look up attractions and restaurants, etc.

KnowRoaming is an international roaming provider. They have reasonable rates for roaming in Canada and FREE WhatsApp usage.

I have a GPS. We will plan our itinerary before we leave home. I am assuming (and will know for sure when we book) that our hotels/motels will have wifi. I'll probably get something with a small data package anyway.

I use Roam Mobility when I travel to US. They also have prepaid plans for people travelling to Canada.

Understood. I have a Garmin too but I much prefer the real time Navigation of Google. The Garmin is my backup now.

Not sure where to put this but since I am a Consumer Cellular customer, I'll start here. I will be traveling to Canada (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia) this summer. Would like to have a working cell phone. I have a spare 1st generation unlocked Moto X that I can take with me. I'll need a GSM carrier (I think Rogers is one) and not a whole lot of minutes since I'll only be in Canada about a week.

Should I buy a prepaid SIM ahead of time? Or is it better to buy one on my first day in Canada? Any recommendations are appreciated, even if only what forum I should ask this in.

Thanks.



I highly recommend you activate a AT&T GoPhone line.

It works 100% well in Canada on Rogers network.

You can call between Canada and usa, text between Canada and usa.

I had a family member use that since I live in Canada and have spare AT&T SIM's for such situations.
