Default Diagnostic Scanner (more than a code reader)

Can anyone recommend a scanner and where to buy it? I want something that can read all the sensors, not just general codes. FOr example, which sensor is causing my compressor to not engage and what is causing my p0171 on my other vehicle? I've heard you can get pirated software for a PC and I know you can get professional scanners.

If you have an Android phone you've already got one. Buy the Torque Pro app ($5) and an ELM327 Bluetooth adapter (prices and quality vary, get one that says it's compatible with Torque) and you're set. Torque reads codes and freeze-frame, live ECU data, readiness status, and does other stuff like virtual gauges. And since it's on your phone you've always got it with you.
Of course there are some limitations- since it's an OBDII device it won't have access to some ECU data that's Subaru-specific. For those items you'd need an Accessport or Subaru Monitor. But it's incredibly useful and a great value.
