I had a Scangauge in my Miata, but for the Impreza I bought an ELM327 v1.5 Bluetooth OBDII Interface Auto Diagnostic Scanner for $25 on eBay (from seller yigounet in California). It's a small bluetooth dongle that plugs into the OBDII connector under the dash and provides wireless access to the OBD2 system. I got the free version of Torque for Android to access it from my Samsung Nexus S phone - huge range of readings and display formats. I'm sure there's something equivalent for iPhone/iPad.
