One thing to note about the GMA340 is that this is primarily for the fixed wing market and the P1 and P2 positions (volume & sq) will be the wrong way round
Actually no. The 340 comes in three versions, one of which is the 340H with the pilot adjust on the right and co pilot on the left (also a dual ADF version if you really like NDB approaches).

You can see the H version on my machine if you are at Gamston (close to your location).

I think the std audio fit will accept a second radio - I used to operate two via this with each radio having an on/ off and both via some small and annoying small silver switches, but the 340 makes a lot of difference for usage and would also be neccesary for taking the audio feeds from radnav instruments for identing.
