BLE list of characteristics of services

Hello.

I have found this document and have a question. 

In according with document  below: service "Generic Access" (UUID1800) has a few characteristics: "Device Name", "Appearance", "Peripheral Privacy Flag", "Reconnection Address" and "Peripheral Preferred Connection Parameters" and for example "Device name" characteristic has UUID: 00002a00-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb.

are my conclusions true?

  • The Bluetooth SIG developer's site used to render the service information into a very reader-friendly display where it was very easy to see all the characteristics and their properties in the various services. Now all you get is this xml document. I'm glad I am not a paying member!

    That being said, I don't see anywhere in that xml that the uuid of the Device name characteristic is 2a00. To find that you have to look at another xml page.
