The frequency for Cardiff approach is incorrect. A Notam has changed it to 119.155.

Could you please elaborate a tad more what your complaint, bug, suggestion really is?

There is a frequency for Cardiff Approach in the AIP. This is what Skydemon pulls electronically (for cost optimization reasons and this is what you pay for with the subscription) and uses it. The frequency has changed by NOTAM. You as a pilot have to do a proper pre-flight preparation anyways and NOTAMs are definitely a mandatory part of it, so you always have the right frequency. If the change is permanent - we don't know - the NOTAM will change to a change in the AIP, where Skydemon will pick it. We have seen this numerous times before, so this is a non-event. Btw, if you dial in the temporarily not used frequency, you get an announcement for the current correct one.

Changes to frequencies are only permanent when they become part of the AIP, at which point SkyDemon's chart data is updated too. As pilot-byom says, in the meantime you've got the NOTAM notifying you of the change and this is how it's supposed to work. We don't pre-empt the change in our permanent data based on the NOTAM, because it could theoretically be cancelled at any time.
