Another lost art (in fact, it was commonly overlooked even "back in the day" to the occasional peril of an IFR pilot) is that of tuning and identifying the VOR signal. I used to catch pilots with this in training scenarios.
Now, some GPS units will actually "listen" and identify the VOR signal matching the tuned frequency automatically.
From a basic, Part 91 perspective, there's no difference here between you looking at the VOR signal and hand-flying corrections, you looking at the VOR signal and making corrections in autopilot heading mode, or you looking at the VOR signal and verifying the autopilot is keeping in the right place as it follows a GPS course.
Unless some ops spec or flight manual text requires the "primary navigation" be shown on the primary CDI, you could still monitor the VOR signal on a secondary display.
Note that it's not the VOR signal you need: It's just the DME, because that's the only way to identify the stepdowns.
This approach is a GPS overlay, meaning, you can use your GPS to fly the same courses you'd fly using the RID VOR signal. Except, you won't.
We could comply with this clearance by using the raw VOR signal, or the slightly trickier OBS mode of our GPS.
Using a VOR signal, the CDI shows the pilot the number of degrees the aircraft is off the selected course (or the number of miles off-course if the source of the navigation is GPS).
Many autopilots can track a VOR signal, but you must tell the autopilot which direction you want to track on the course.
With a VOR signal displayed on the HSI, the "dots" are an angular error off the selected course.
