Looking for a new Tomtom with the ability to save 'my location' in its favourites list.

I have been bought a Tomtom 42 by my wife, as she's 'borrowed' my Tomtom 25 for the last couple of years. The Tomtom 42 does NOT have the ability to save my location in favourites. I work out in the fields, and need to be able to store my immediate location, which I have been brought to by a customer and which I need to return to. My 42 is therefore not fit for purpose. There seem to be lots of new models out there. I am in the UK and just need a new model that will allow me to save my locations. Any suggestions please? Prefer a larger screen (5" + ) and with the menu bar along the bottom. The ones on the side are rubbish and distracting and don't offer the data I need.
