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.

    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.

    Please remove or disable this. It causes endless chat spam about loc information.

    [Updated] Thanks for the status update Murdabenne.

    I had touched base with Cladhaire back in July, but the poor chap has been super busy with a thesis and did not have a beta key.

    However, to get my own addon developed (WoWPro) I needed to provide my guide writers with a version TomTom that was semi-operational.

    Cladhaire has closed the ticket that I filed and sucked the tasty bits out of it. Work is actively proceeding!

    For those asking, here is all you need to know

    1. The original author Cladhaire has said this will be updated for 6.02+
    2. Same person said it would be "a few days"
    3. Same person said disable TomTom until then

    Remember this is done free for you, so be patient, and be glad he has decided to come back and fix it.

    Now for those if you impatient and adventurous, caraxle has posted links to an unofficial patched copy at WowPro done by a user (NOT cladhaire nor Caraxle) there, as well as some corrections to error that user made. If you're comfortable running hacked code (in the good meaning of Hack), and are comfortable editing code, then go give that a try. Otherwise simply follow what cladhaire said and disable TomTom, and wait for the update. Curse client will keep watch for you, if you are so inclined.
