Seems you have an android phone you probably best trying a bluetooth obd dongle & torque app as first step as they cheap.

A good old cable & notebook with some software is good too.

Some links at bottom of linked post may be helpful (torque app, pc software, eBay link).

other option is a cheapish handheld, they tend have less connection issues to ecu over the china elm327 bt dongle scanners, quality of the china elm327 stuff is bit iffy as newer ones are all about even cheaper manufacture so they have more compatibility problems .

Aucky recommended me this from scoobyworld: http://scoobyworld.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=2155

Comes with software key for OBDWiz, and I have to say it works brilliantly- software is easy to use, and for £30 couldn't ask for more!

Damn, looks decent that too. I ordered a vgate Bluetooth one off ebay it was on the torque app website. If this doesn't work I will be onto Scooby world!

Hi all, got three Subaru's, the one I want to ask about today is the 2013 20.i XT, I'm having issues with the lineartronic gearbox, do any of you have knowledge of a good scanner tool that will read the transmission module,
