You didn't say what the external recorder was. I have a Sound Devices 788t and on a recent shoot with the same camera we just set both cameras to free run time of day mode. We didn't have a cable to jam both devices but when you come to sync the days footage you can just record one really good clap at the start of the day.

Then take the audio and place all clips in a timeline based on their source timecode. Do the same for the pictures. Select all audio and line up that one good clapper. All the rest of the days clips should sync or worse case be a frame out. Once synced you can sub clip or whatever you want.

I did two days of filming with the Canon and three days on another shoot with a RED epic and this worked perfectly.If your recorder doesn't record timecode you probably can't use this trick.
