[OSM-talk] Uber most likely using OSM data

The best thing would be to use the Uber API to receive the route instead, 
so we could compare the lat/lon of the points with the ones stored in db.  
But it seems that this API returns an image instead:

So we could instead use the "estimates-price" api:
which returns a distance. This distance should match the OSM distance.  
Could this be right ?
