Go to each website and add up all that's needed.
Then consider the installation. You will have at least 20 wires going from the engine to the EMS. On the MGL, all of these wires connect to a small unit mounted by the motor and only three wires pass through the firewall to the screen.
Later on when you want to add a feature, you just connect it to the engine side unit..... no diving under the panel to add a few wires to the already big bundle under there.
I just added an oil temp probe to my XTreme to replace Van's probe and gauge...... Total time 15 minutes. And I never stepped into the airplane or reached under the panel.
When I fired up the unit,, I noticed that all 4 egt's and all 4 cht's read exactly the same. The OAT and the oil temp were one degree higher.
Do read all of the features, it is very impressive as an EMS or an EFIS..... http://www.mglavionics.com/html/xtreme_ems.html
