TomTom

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 Curse.com. 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.

    Has the waypoint arrow stopped workign accross zones? It seems to have stopped working for me. It will only show for points in the current zone. I do have the option turned on to show points across zones.

    Glad you were able to get it resolved.

    Ahhh...I see what happened, thanks for the info on framestack that helped. It turned out that Lorewalkers add on now as a waypoint frame and it enabled when it updated and unlocked it so that it showed this big frame. I locked it and turned it off. That resolved it. Thanks so much for the help.

    @Golconda: Go

    It may be that its some other addon that skins or changes frames.. I honestly have no idea. You can do the following however:

    /framestack

    Then mouse over the frame, and see what frame names are listed.

    I can assure you that it is not TomTom making it, but we'll do what we can to try and get it resolved. Let me know what you figure out.

    I am not sure what is happening but there is a large white box with giant purple letters that says 'MOVE THE FRAME'. It is right in the very center of the screen. It was not there before but when Tom Tom was updated and I downloaded the most recent update, it appeared. I tried reloading without the most recent updates one at a time and the box in the middle of the screen only disappeared when I disabled TomTom. I was hoping that being as how you are way smarter than I am that you could tell me what caused this?

    @pandamonium411: Go

    How did you come to this conclusion? I cannot figure anything out without any information. What error message did you get. Did it blame TomTom somehow?

    TomTom has absolutely 0 impact on the pet dismissal system, so there's not really anything for me to look into. I'm happy to investigate if you can provide more information.

    TomTom seems to be conflicting with my ability to dismiss my pet. Hope you can figure out the cause of that and fix it, as it caused me some trouble trying to escape a situation when suddenly I couldn't dismiss my pet.

    Im sry for the misunderstanding and confusion. :) Ill try to clarify things a bit.

    I was using Mapster before i tried TomTom, and since Mapster has such an option i assumed TomTom has it also (which was a mistake).

    Here is a screenshot of the worldmap with only Mapster: http://imgur.com/58JHM

    and here with only TomTom: http://imgur.com/ULMPa

    I marked the party memeber with an red square, which is is indicated by a noticeably larger yellow dot when using only mapster (which makes it more visible on the map).

    The quest objective is wisible in the middle, and is noticeably larger in TomTom, which leads to a problem when u have a larger number of quest objectives near eachother.

    Anyway i managed to solve the problem by enabling both addons, since i rly like the waypoint option of TomTom and the resize map option of Mapster.

    Thx for your time and effort trying to help me. :))

    @kmitza: Go

    I'm not sure what you mean. TomTom doesn't provide party/raid member indicators, and it doesn't change the size of the map. So I guess the answer to that question is No.

    Similarly, TomTom doesn't control the quest objective numbers that are on your map. The only TomTom things are the green and yellow dots. Maybe you could post a screenshot and we can figure out where your issue lies?
