I agree. I taxi cabbed all over the place in GTA IV because the driving was frustrating. It was crowded. The cops were all over and a little too attentive (although in this they may be a little too unattentive). There were too many hard angled turns. And the thing was so huge it could take twenty minutes to get from point a to point b. Fast travelling in the taxi felt like a necessary evil just to make the game playable, but it also didn't help in terms of learning the city.
The GPS in this is somewhat non-invasive, so it helps, but you still have to learn the city, because they really only give you the turns on screen.
