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.

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the arrows on the minimap? I've tried disabling all the options and they still show :S

    Excellent! /way 50 50 brought it back.

    @LuckyBastrd: Go

    They are the exact same arrow.

    /way 50 50

    Whatever is/was setting your waypoints isn't any longer. That's what you need to fix.

    Ok so now that I have had an opportunity to find out about the corpse arrow, it appears that the reset option worked for the corpse arrow, but I still unable to see the waypoint arrow.

    I have tried that before, and I just tried it again and it still does not appear. I tried pulling profile settings from alt toons but that does not seem to pull the arrow back into the visible screen.

    @LuckyBastrd: Go

    There is an option to reset the position. Just click that button under options!

    I accidentally dragged my way point arrow (and the corpse arrow) off of the screen, now I cant seem to get them to display again. I have tried removing TomTom from my add-ons and downloading and reinstalling but neither one seems to work.

    Seems complicated... yes, I already reported it to the authors of atlasloot and they promised to further investigate the issue.

    Possibly because we are including a newer version of the library than they are. Possibly because there is some other form of interaction going on. In short, I'm not sure what to tell you, but there's not a single call to TomTom anywhere in your stack trace, whereas there are calls to AtlasLoot. Please contact them, and they can contact me with any further issues.

    Unfortunately I have 0/525 LUA editing. But, allow me to ask: if it is an issue with atlas or atlasloot and the way they use AceDB, why does it only generate errors when TomTom and Archy are used too? Atlas and Atlasloot both work fine with my lvl2 bank char, cause he's NOT using TomTom or Archy - no error code generated. Don't understand this.

    (made updates to my post below, error codes)
