The search box on the left does not work because the demo is not a full
implementation of the main page. (On my to do list).

After enabling the routing layer, you can search for London.

Which unfortunately returns London in Ontario, Canada, which is the first
entry of the list returned by Nominatim. Ideally cities should be listed in
decreasing population size. Not a big job considering the data is in the
geonames database.
