Honda is offering Key by Amazon In-Car Delivery service for subscribers of its HondaLink Remote Services connected-car system. Through the Key by Amazon app, owners of select Honda vehicles with compatible HondaLink Remote Package and Amazon Prime membership can now opt to have their packages delivered to their vehicles.
How Key by Amazon In-Car Delivery Works
Key by Amazon In-Car Delivery is available at no additional cost to owners of select trims of Accord, Accord Hybrid and Insight sedans, Passport and Pilot SUVs, and Odyssey minivan with a HondaLink Remote Package subscription. Customers must also be Prime members and located in one of 50 cities and surrounding areas supported by the Key service.
Members download the Key by Amazon app to their smartphone, log-in with their Amazon.com account information, and then select the year, make, and model of their Honda. The Key by Amazon app requests the user’s HondaLink credentials, which enables Amazon delivery agents limited use of the remote features through HondaLink. Once setup is complete and a delivery location is registered, customers can shop on Amazon.com and select the “In-Car” delivery option at checkout.
On delivery day, customers should park within two blocks of their selected delivery address. Customers will receive a 4-hour delivery window and an “Arriving Now” notification when the delivery driver is headed to their vehicle. Once Amazon determines that the customer’s car is within range of the delivery address, the driver will locate the car using its GPS location. After the vehicle is identified, the driver scans the package and requests for the vehicle to be unlocked. The driver then places the package inside the car and requests for the vehicle to be relocked. Once the in-car delivery is completed, customers receive a notification from the Key by Amazon app letting them know that their car is locked and their package is waiting inside.
