Reminds me of the good times of CAT III landing with ADF navaids in the L-39...

I voted "yes" but I can't see where a NS430 would fit.

It might fit on the rear dashboard below the main instruments but it would then be both unpractical (sitting low, behind the stick) for the rear seat and useless for the front seat pilot which I'm sure is what most of us use.

So it's also a solid "no" if it's not properly integrated.

Wouldn't be useless at all, A lot of important stuff sits behind the stick on aircraft, the spitfire, has its magnetic compass there, the Mustang has its rocket/bomb selector as well as fuel tank selector and gunsight switch there.

I meant useless for the front seat if it's only fitted in the rear cockpit. But I get your point.
Still, I wouldn't be comfortable using an instrument as complex as this navigation system sitting behind the control stick. A few switches or a compass are fine though.

The only retrofits photos I've seen are modernised dashboards with the GPS in the center or a GPS unit fixed to the right side of the dashboard.
