Have you, or anyone you know ever had a package disappear from the home front porch? There is now a new feature available to Amazon Prime Members in select cities that offers a more secure and convenient means to receive your orders without maintaining a mailbox at the local post office. Have it delivered to your vehicle using Honda Key by Amazon.
What is Honda Key by Amazon?
Honda Key by Amazon works with your HondaLink app. When you check out at Amazon, select Key In-Car Delivery instead of your usual Tipp City home address. The app allows a certified Amazon driver to have your car unlocked by HondaLink when they arrive at the car’s location. They put the package in your trunk and then the Honda Key locks up after delivery is complete.
How Does It Work?
When checking out, you select In-Car delivery. Amazon provides a 4-hour delivery window and a date of arrival, so you can select a delivery address where your car will be parked at that time. Your vehicle must be within two blocks of the address and parked in a publicly accessible location. The Amazon driver locates your car using GPS coordinates provided by your HondaLink system. When Amazon verifies the driver is at the vehicle, they request that HondaLink unlocks it. When the delivery driver sends a picture of the package in your car, Honda locks it back up for you.
For example, while you would typically have your Prime package dropped off at your Dayton or Beavercreek address, with Honda Key, you could have the parcel delivered to your connected Honda parked in the city. This ability means you don’t have to go back home to get your package and can plan on putting your new item to use on your way home from work.
Which Honda Vehicles Can It Work On?
Your Honda must have both HondaLink and the specific Honda Key app available. This feature can be found on several Honda models with the Touring or Elite trim including the 2018 and 2019 Honda Accord, 2019 and 2020 Honda Insight, 2018 and 2019 Honda Odyssey, and 2019 Honda Passport and 2019 Honda Pilot. As the service expands, you may see this feature appear on the Honda CR-V and Honda Civic in future models.
Where is Honda Key Available?
Currently, Amazon offers this premium delivery service option in 50 cities across America, including Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Columbus, OH. Even if your home is not within the current Honda Key area, you can send gifts to your friends in participating cities and have their connected car specified as the delivery address.
What Else Does HondaLink Do?
Your HondaLink offers many more convenient features that can be used in your Springfield and Richmond neighborhood, including remote start, maintenance reminders, call for roadside assistance, and easy access to navigation from your smartphone. If you are touring in a new city, it also offers a personal concierge service to help you find parking, restaurants, and even a hotel room.
