    I've wasted several hours browsing around on Street View. do you know how easy it is to cross the US/Canadian border without having to deal with any kind of border patrol?

    extremely easy.

    You click on the icon next to "Traffic" in the header, he appears, and you drag him to the street you want to look at.

    I wasn't looking there. That's where he appeared when I clicked on the icon to activate the feature.
