id=unique identifier of a compass — compulsory


Inside <compass> statements concerning the compass model used are given. Several <compass> elements can be given one after the other.

In case a <manufacturer>'s data are defined before in the UDDF file it is possible to set a cross-reference via <link/> to these data inside every section of a piece of equipment. Then the <manufacturer>'s data need to be given only once (globally) but can be used as often as necessary.
