Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

705 compatibility

Garmin’s website says that speed, HR and cadence will all be transmitted through the Powertap electronics (i.e., no need to buy Garmin’s speed and cadence units).

Is the same also true for Quarq and SRM?

SRM doesn't translate speed. But the 705 picks up cadence from the SRM.

I don't use the GSC-10 accessory with my SRM/705. SRM provides cadence, GPS provides speed/distance. The latter metric isn't all that important so I'm fine sacrificing some accuracy in speed/distance if it saves me a couple grams and a couple $$.
