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.
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 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.
HondaLink is Honda’s cloud-based connected car system, which links owners’ compatible smartphones and data packages to their Honda’s embedded telematics system. The subscription-based system works any time the phone and the vehicle both have a data connection, and allows owners a wide range of features and functionality. Basic and Link services are complimentary, with Security, Remote and Concierge services available for an additional charge after a trial period.
The addition of Key by Amazon In-Car Delivery expands the already robust capabilities of the smartphone-based HondaLink service and app, offering a wide variety of complementary services, such as the ability to make service appointments, get roadside assistance, and receive recall and vehicle notifications directly on the driver’s smartphone.
Additional HondaLink services available on a subscription basis include geofencing and speed alerts for parents of teen drivers, a stolen vehicle locator, enhanced roadside assistance, automatic collision notification, remote start, and even personal concierge services.
