Download airspace and Turnpoints - it will download as a .zip file - this .zip file needs to be 'extracted' on to your device's sd card (for LX90xx/LX80xx/S10x/S8x varios) or your device's internal memory (TFAT drive for Oudies). Then put the .cup turnpoint file into the 'Turnpoint' or 'Waypoint' folder. The .cub file needs to be placed in the 'Airspace' folder. The .txt file is only applicable to those who use XCSoar, Tophat or another soaring program. Airspace now has all wave boxes and radio frequencies appended to the airspace name.
