Torque pro ( I have it for Android pm me your email for a copy)

And a an android phone or tablet with blue tooth

This Obd2 dongle works with my wife's 2010 TD forester and not only does it clear codes when calibrated to the vehicle (very easy) it has the engine parameters as well

boring video for torque pro


Have these (ELM & Torque Pro) and use them on other makes BUT they will not read the 'Bug'. After researching Code reading on Subie Sites, I have ordered an OBD2 VAG COM 409.1 Diagnostic Cable. Free SSM is installed awaiting the cable. This is purported to be the correct configuration for reading a GG.

IAT arrives next week. Hopefully this will be the fix.

Update

I know it has been a little while but busy, busy etc.

The new IAT / MAP Sensor has been installed. Same problem, same code although the frequency is slightly less.

However, there is one new observation: after a rare excursion on the highway the code disappears and only recurs when back in city traffic. This car generally 'puddles' around town in stop / start traffic so I am beginning to think about a blocked CAT. We have totally exhausted all possible faults around the IAT / Throttle Body so whilst this (the CAT theory) may be "drawing a long bow" it fits with the symptoms - lethargic performance and rough idle.

More later. Looking at a replacement CAT to eliminate this.

The VAG connector works perfectly in reading and clearing codes. Thanks to Toonga for your input.
