Any news about the battery change in your 705? Thinking about doing mine.
I've done a couple, it's quite easy, unscrew the Torx screws on the back, open up the case, remove battery (it's glued in but it's not that hard to remove), replace with new battery, make sure all cables are reconnected (again, not hard and there's really only one way to attach them), close it up. If you have a reasonable level of hand-eye coordination and technical insight you'll be finished within 15 minutes. Then again, if play blocks puzzled you to no end in Kindergarten, I would leave the job to someone else ;)
Chains to the right!

Put a new battery in my Edge 800. Easy and gives the GPS a nice long run time again : )
