  • Are you telling the head unit to look for separate speed and cadence sensors? It's took me while to work that out when I set mine up first.

    The 705 doesn't support Cadence only sensor id's.

    You need a combined sensor like the GSC10

    Yep as above; Garmin web site doesn't list the 705 as a compatible device.
    I ride a bike. Doesn't make me green or a tree hugger. I drive a car too.

    Decathlon have a similar unit cheaper, no real world experience of it

    It won't. Cateye sensors aren't ANT+
