Abstract: GPS technology at this time is commonly used, Because GPS is already a mandatory feature on a Smartphone because it can help in everyday life, such as for example we want to a place that we have never visited and we do not know the route to there, with the GPS we easily go to a place and do not have to worry about getting lost, at this time the GPS can also be used for various needs one of them help the delivery to know the closest distance to the next destination from the current position. By implementing the Haversine Algorithm, it is created on the Android platform using the Kotlin programming language and utilizes the Google Maps API as a Virtual Maps provider. This app connects to the database on the Server and obtains data such as the current position of the car, the delivery destination through the API created and show in the form of JSON FORMAT, thus the user will know the distance of all delivery destinations from the current position so it is expected to make it easier to determine the destination of the next delivery.
