I am looking at a new Sat Nav, I have a 740 live, thats beginning to fail, so what I would like to know what is the best replacement sat nav for me.

I would like 5" or 6" screen, itinerary planning and of course PGPS speed camera database files.

I have read loads of posts on the new Tom tom's lacking some features, so I am confused as what to get.

thanks Flack

I can't think of any new one which even comes close to the 740. So what's wrong with the 740?
Battery? - run it off the charger all the time.
Software going base over apex? - put everything onto a good SDHC card (Class 10 is good) and run it from the SD card instead.

Probably the best "new" model for you would be a GO1000Live Refurbished from the TomTom Outlet Store

http://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/shop/tomtom-outlet-store/

Actually, the absolute best would be the GO750 Live from there, but they haven't got any (No BUY NOW button).

Of the three criteria you specify (Screen, Itineraries and PGPSW Cameras), the latest models only meet the screen. The others come under "TomToms lacking some features".
