I don't know if this is the right place, if not I would appreciate someone to direct me. I am thinking about using an addon for the first time. Mainly I would like the one that gives an loc or I can type in an loc and get directions...could someone point me to what is available and make suggestions as to which is best?
Any and all help would be appreciated
Try Carbonite. But understand that it is a lot more than just a location assist. Personally, I love the various things it gives you. You can read about it here
and download it from the link on that page, or from WOW Interface
It may actually have exactly what you're looking for: "Guide/Hud - The guide is your in-game GPS - it contains the location of every mailbox, trainer, flight master, repair vendor, instance, battle master, etc... if it's in the game it's in the guide. Just click the icon and the HUD navigation arrow will show you the direction, distance and ETA to your target. You can also use it to locate your friends or guild members in a battleground."
By the way, that "HUD navigation arrow" can be moved wherever you want it on the screen, and you don't have to open anything to move it, just click on it and hold and then move it.
