I can recommend Scangauge II. Alternatively you can get a cheap OBDII bluetooth adapter and download "Torque" (for android at least; not sure about the fruit phone).

Any advice for a low budget scanning tool that works on for an 03 Forester?
I like my Actron PocketScan. If you're patient, you can find one for ~$30 or so. It does all the read/erase functions. Looking on eBay (where I bought mine) I see some other brands plus unbranded models from China. They should work as well. A tough, rugged case is probably the most useful quality for a scanner. As you pay more money, you get additonal "features" - like explanations of the codes, etc. If you pay enough extra, you get a free log-in to Danica Patrick's website ;-)

Buy this OBD bluetooth adapter and then download OBDFusion on your smartphone. Similar to torque but less bugs, I find the user interface to be better, and you can easily log data and upload to drop box so you can share and get others opinions.

Sorry! Something went wrong!

I spend a lot of time on a BMW E46 forum and it's always the recommended first scan tool before you get into the expensive brand specific diagnostic tools.
