No. Modern conveniences like these in games are a good thing. Same for fast travel. I will utilize options that are there for my convenience rather than having a misplaced nostalgia for the inconveniences of "old school" games.
I'm keeping it on, but not so I know where to go. I just want to know where to avoid until I explore the rest of the area, because I hate when a game progresses and blocks access to treasures or other missable things.
