I just use the romer on my Silva type 4 to measure sub1km 'paceable'distances. ( it has 1:40000 as well as 1:250000).
No need for anything more. Then paces are calculated on the hop. (I'm also 54 on flattish very easy terrain going upwards as it gets harder going).
I'd contest the notion that paces are equivalently accurate to timing for micronav. and for "macronav" paces not really necessary. ( if they are, it becomes micronav?)
