Koodo is offering U.S. Unlimited add-on ($10/mo) if you use a lot of minutes to call US.

They have promo right now and your $40 plan have 1 GB included now.

If you pick $55/mo plan includes 2GB + Unlimited minutes:
$55  + $10 U.S. Unlimited add-on + $15 tab = $80/mo

Or $60/mo plan includes 3GB + 1000 minutes:
$60 + $10 U.S. Unlimited add-on + $15 tab = $85/mo

Check their promo plans here :)

GPS programs are available that do not use your data while travelling. I use Copilot, and others have recommended Here Maps. Both available on the App store. This can considerably reduce your travelling data consumption.
