Ok, I'll try.
First, try to keep things as flexible as you can. You most likely will be changing things after a while.
During your initial flying, you will not be getting into situations, one would hope. A simple and cheap tablet with Avare will give you a moving map, and more. You can always move to something more expensive later, after you gauge your actual requirements, based upon initial flying. Keep a list of things you wish you had, and you'll have some of the requirements when you do decide to upgrade.
As for ADS-B, start cheap. One I've seen that I like is the Linx, I think that's the name. Expensive, over 5 grand, but, it talks to you. Any ADS-B that requires your eyes inside the cockpit is not good, in my opinion.
I want to hear "traffic on collision course your 7 o'clock, break right and dive". Of course, it should have told you about the traffic before it got so close.
Avoid steam gauges ....
I know Marc (with a "C") doesn't like MGL, and I really can't say much about them. I have a compass with a remote sender, and I'm rather happy about it. At least until it fails me. I do have some friends who are using various MGL products and are rather happy with them.
Here is a rule. You WILL change some of your initial instruments. So keep them as cheap as you can while you learn your aircraft.
