I understand that they do not have strobes/nav capability.
Kindly asking for advise. What would you do as a simple yet clean replacement with good powerful lights that do not interfere with radio transmissions and add as much as possible in nav and strobe capability ?

I just completed building my wingtip lights from a kit supplied by Flyleds. I haven't flown yet, but the LEDs are VERY bright and draw almost no power. They have kits for position and strobe alone or with landing lights too, and all fit in the Vans wingtip cutout space.
I was initially reluctant to build them myself because I don't have a lot of experience soldering electronics, but their instructions were extremely clear and very helpful-- tailored to someone like me. Flyleds has an option where they will build your lights for a fee, but I'd "roll my own" again in a heartbeat.
And their products are significantly less money than most of the other options I looked at.
So I'd recommend you check them out. I think if you search the forums you'll find a lot of happy Flyled customers. I am certainly one!
