If you choose to only "run" the NavDisplay,  what do you give up other than the pendulum needle?

Is it fair to say most new installations only use the NavDisplay?

Thanks for your reply.

I'm keeping both displays in my cockpit....

The tape display on NAV is pretty handicapped.  It's true that I don't look at the orange needle very much, but I never use the tape display.  It's nice looking on the ground.  Not useful in flight. 

The rotary encoders are superior for many functions in flight, as well.  Audio volume, for instance.

I don't like the rotary encoders.
If both knobs would be at least on the bottom, then your hand would not cover the screen when turning them.
That,s why I prefer the push buttons.
I got so used to the vario display on the NAV that I kicked the analog out.
But that's personal preference. My college Terry wanted also both varios installed so I installed him both.  ;)

I wish for a  80 mm analog that will display all feature of the digital less the ribbon,
