    ..afternoon, just looking for a bit of clarity. Got a few long days coming up and want to make sure we get everything recorded. We'll be using a Fenix 5S, 500 and a 705 (I think).

    I think that I can charge and record on the go to the 500 with a power bank and OTG USB lead? Would the 705 need the same type of connection or is the standard USB ok.

    I have no idea about the Fenix 5S, I realise I'd have to take it off to charge but can I just connect a power bank to it's data / charging lead and have it continue to record?

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    Garmin 705 can be charged on the go as long as you have the right lead. If not, it will think it is connected to a computer and shut down. Get a non-data lead and test it beforehand.
