Use of Flight Computers for PPL TK Exams UK

Saw an advert for PPL exams recently which suggests that the 'Whizz Wheel' (CRP1/5) HAD to be used for exam calculations. My understanding is that CAA Standards doc 11 permits a scientific calculator OR mechancical navigation slide rule (CRP1/5) OR an electronic flight computer. I take the latter to include something like Sports E6-B or ASA CX-3 etc. Any views on what the CAA had in mind here? Would SkyDemon or Rocket Route also fit in to this category?

As you said Stds Doc 11 states the requirements/limitations
Candidates may use the following equipment during an examination:
(1) a scientific calculator, or
(2) a mechanical navigation slide rule (DR calculator), or
(3) an electronic flight computer, and
(4) a protractor;
(5) a compasses and dividers;
(6) a ruler

Except equipment specified above, candidates should not use any other electronic equipment during the examination(s).
In essence nothing programable so Sky Demon and Rocket Route are not allowed
