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.

    Could TomTom enable a feature to show which "fly-points" are not captured by me?! Because I never know which one I really have. Only via the "fly master" I see which are not captured.

    But when I'm near one, I don't know it. So I have to walk to it to see if I already got that point. When you only play one char, it's not a big deal. But if you play more you can't remember that :-\

    I made a screenshot to show how small map notices are:

    There should be an option to adjust the size of a Notice. And it should be possible to set / edit a notice on the minimap. When I'm near a notice, I cant edit / set it on my actual position. Because my player arrow is too big. So that I can't set it on the right location. MiniMap Editing of Notices would make this much easier.

    Hi, is there a way to increase the icon size of a map notice? When you press: Alt + Right click You can create a notice + icon for it. But that Icon (in my opinion) is to small. I wanted to increase the size like the quest ?-Icon size.

    Not implemented yet?!

    Hey there, could you maybe add a "map mark" function, so that you can add map marks shown in the tooltip on mouseover? Also nice would be a "lock" function that exclude this locked map marks from "remove all arrows" function, maybe a checkbox in the right-click menu or something ^^

    @DarkMeister1977: Go

    It's a known issue. I'm just now coming back to WoW, and can't live without the big crazy arrow, so I patched up my local copy.

    I've submitted a diff and a request to Cladhaire, and am just waiting to see how they want to handle it.

    Sorry if this seems like a dumb question, but how can you get TomTom to track quests that you tell it to? The only way it will work (with the arrow coming up) is closest quest only. If I uncheck that, the arrow goes away until I manually create a waypoint.

    Apologies if this has been asked before

    @Redharlot: Gooh gods up above update this addon

    This has been a god send since I started using it way back when you first launched.  Having said that will you be updating this for Legion?  I can not imagine using the stock "waypoint" system provided by Blizzard.
