Amazon delivery - follow the van feature.

17
Found 30th Nov 2017
I has a delivery from Amazon today and thought I would check the tracking information. It showed a map which had my house on and the position of the van which was nearby and it said the driver had 7 deliveries before mine.

The van then moved from the road it was on to another and it said 6 deliveries before mine and it turns out all 6 were on the same road.

I then went to my front door and was waiting when the driver pulled up. He was so grateful.

I thought it was a kind of neat feature.

Hmm didn’t knew they have this feature. Must be new. I’ll try that today while waiting for my new phone. Thanx

Not on my amazon prime either
Thanks. This will make it sooo easier to carjack.
trainspotting is good too.
I saw/used this last week. Tracked the van until it was my turn, then watched the driver walk up to the front door (on my phone) via my (hduk impulse buy) security camera.
Big brother is watching ....

Did the screen break?
all I got was an 8am-10pm delivery window and then he still didn't turn up, on the plus side my free trial is now 2 months instead of 1
I just see a "We'll delivery it by 8pm, if will can be bothered".
No info about where the van is or if they've stopped at a lay-by to take a whizz in a bottle
Oooo I have a feature that shows delivered when it wasn't even sent.

that's a good thing, who gives a flip how many metres the van is from your house, better things to do?
Van delivery updates for me too today.
Was very handy as it was being delivered to my other half's work so I could drop him a text to say it would be with him in a few minutes.
Very handy Amazon, thank you

I'm sure this was possible in the past for their own use? GPS, deliveries logged, etc.

well I do seeing as they have started delivering here about 8.30pm most days now, at least I will know if I can go out.
Weirdly they sent a £5 small item by DPD today so got the delivery window etc with it.
Shame thy didn't send the 2 tablets I ordered last week this way, they might not have ended up 4 days late.
