TomTom's "Crazy Arrow"

TomTom is your personal navigation assistant in World of Warcraft. This addon is very simple, but provides a nice set of functionality. Thanks to Esamynn for Astrolabe, which does the bulk of the work in this addon.

Bugs and Support (PLEASE READ)
Unfortunately I have been forced to disable user comments on For some absurd reason the site has stopped sending me emails when you guys post a new comment, making me completely unable to provide support via this means. I am still happy to provide assistance, both on Curseforge and Wowinterface:

TomTom offers the following major features:

  • Set waypoints via command, or by clicking on the world map
  • A draggable coordinate display with customizable accuracy. This frame can be hidden or locked.
  • Player and cursor coordinates on the World Map (these can be hidden)
  • A floating "crazy-taxi" style arrow that points you to your destination
  • Displaying the "crazy-taxi" arrow or coordinate block in compatible LDB displays, such as NinjaPanel
  • Show a waypoint that points you towards your corpse for easy recovery
  • Can set waypoints by clicking on quest objective POIs on the World Map and watch frame.

Slash Commands:
/tomtom - Opens configuration GUI

In addition you can use the /way command to add and reset waypoints. In order to overcome conflicts with the Cartographer /way command, you can also use /tway to access TomTom's waypoint command. The following slash commands are available:

Slash CommandDescription
/way 14.78 23.9Add a new waypoint at 14.78, 23.90
/way Nagrand 45 50Add a new waypoint in Nagrand at 45, 50
/way 14.78 23.90 This is a waypoint!Add a new waypoint with a description
/way reset allRemove ALL current waypoints
/way reset NagrandRemove all waypoints in Nagrand
/wayb or /waybackSets a waypoint at the current location
/cway or /closestwaySet the crazy arrow to the closest waypoint

TomTom has been designed to publish the Crazy-Arrow and Coordinate Block as LDB feeds, allowing them to be displayed in compatible display addons. I've written a very simple, easy-to-configure panel that is capable of displaying these called NinjaPanel.

If you're looking to bulk import waypoints (to track achievements, etc), a community member has provided a great addon that lets you do this easily. Take a look at Paste.

    @stones3103: Go

    Almost certainly an issue. If you can provide an easily reproducable case of this, I can try to fix it. I don't have access to Valley of the Four winds, so testing tha twill be difficult.

    im not sure if this problem im having is your addon or not. I just updated tomtom for WOD and the arrow is pointing in the wrong direction. I was at the fishing camp in the wilds and the arrow showed to get to the valley of the 4 winds that I needed to go out to sea. Plus the yards counter is not working ether. Just wanted to let you know

    Currently I am unable to Right Click place a Waypoint on the map - I tried but Right Click just zooms the map out - am I missing something ?

    Setting Waypoints as /way Northern Stranglethorn Vale xx xx works and most other things like quests and dead body arrows are fine it's purely the Right Click option that is non-functional for me.

    EDIT works again thanks for update !

    Ok, so where do we stick bug reports, don't see anyone else doing so here, and don't want to post a wall of text where it will just irritate people.

    There are lots of known bugs, please keep any bug reports succinct and I'll do what I can to stay up with them. The latest version v60000-1.0.0 should not really be considered a 1.0 release, but it should get us back up and running with most of the functionality in place.

    Thanks for the patience.
