The 470 is probably fine, I havent crunched the numbers but if you power it from your battery (it was designed to be powered from the battery and not intermittent power) the diode will probably survive the additional current.

You will have much difficulty navigating the menus with toggle switches for buttons the shack should have a couple smd tactile switches that can be made to work by soldering leads to them or whatever.
