VOR/ILS marker?  I thought GPS had done away with that.  The Garmin 196 does all of that, and I can take it out when I dont need it.  I would go with a light simple radio, the Icom or similar.

Keep it simple and light.  What don't you need to fly the airplane.

Billy:
The FAR's say something along the lines of, you need a navigation device appropriate to the ground facilities to be used. (see FAR 91.205.(d)If I were you, I'd call the local FISDO and speak to a checkride inspector. The requirements may defferent for Sport Pilot airplanes. Or if you happen to know a designated examiner, ask him, before you go to any additional expense.

All the GPSs are way cool until they go TU when you really need them. It's a great idea to have redundancy achieved through independent systems, especially in IMC.

For training for the IFR in VFR while NOT in the ATC system, one can use many VFR only aircraft but to file IFR to get into the system for training, both the ship and PIC or CFII must be IFR certified and current.
