Road Angel 7000 or ?

Is it worth taking a Road Angel GPS on a tour as a substitute for paper. I have a feeling it would be impracticable. I intend leaving as soon as the schools reopen, and would appreciate other people's thoughts on the matter.

Mavic CXP33, I have been using for about 2 1/2 years. Only snag and very disconcerting is that all tyres seem to nest on a bit to easy, still never had one blow off yet, and I use 110+ psi.

Just had a quick look, Chainreaction Cycles seem to have some. I used to have some cheap and cheerful one's by Raleigh years ago.
