Not as such. It's not turn-by-turn navigation. If you need to go to Random Cave, the mark will point to the cave entrance. If there's a mountain between you and the cave, it'll point to the cave, not to the route you need to take to get around the mountain.
Frankly, it's not nearly as odious as people like to pretend it is. If you know where you are, and you know where your target is, having the game tell you that your target is east of you when it's east of you isn't exactly hand holding. But then again, I guess there were people who liked
buying up reams of graph paper to make their own maps and who still bitch about how Bard's Tale 3 ruined everything by introducing automapping.
