Would be nice if you could somehow include the actual response size and
time in the output to have a feeling for that too. Would you mind to
print an error message if some vehicles or routing types are not
supported instead of printing results for the default? Eg. graphhopper
does not support "shortest" in the web API and OSRM does not support
foot etc

PS: there seems to be a small bug when I enter a new location so I have
to click twice on 'find route'.
