Within this system is an in-car delivery function called “Key by Amazon,” which allows packages to safely and securely be delivered right to your trunk as opposed to the doorstep, where it can be subject to theft. To seamlessly facilitate this transaction, he HondaLink system expertly unlocks your car to allow this safer way of delivery to transpire and then locks it when accesses are no longer needed. It is important to note that this technology only works in 50 American cities and their surrounding areas, with motorists needing to be Amazon Prime customers to use.
