Just started Pocket FMS and it warned me about the out of date AIRAC cycle I
have. Clicked on OK and the warning went away - it didn't force me to
upgrade/update.

Likewise here, but Memory Map occasionally throws a wobbly and gives a
weird error about RS232 - it did this last night, so I switched to
PocketFMS.

Re the DAFIF data - the AIRAC downloads are available at a very
reasonable price through Navigraph.  100 credits cost £6, and 20 credits
will buy one cycle - regardless of how many downloads you make of that
cycle (e.g. I have just downloaded for FSNav, FS Commander and A320 PIC
for a total of 20 credits).  A pity PocketFMS hadn't gone this way too.
