you should trust your fixer, because location info or not, your life is in their hands.
Do you completely trust Wakako? Or Mr. Hands? Or Kirk? Not me. How well did trusting Dex work out?
Fixers set up the jobs, then once I'm briefed I want them out of the way. I'll call them when it's done or there are any complications. I played the CP2020 pen & paper game a *lot* in the 80s and 90s...on any given job, whether a fixer was trying to screw you or had a hidden angle was about 50/50.

This is one where I accept there is some gameplay/story segregation. There are a lot of gigs, and many of them are shorter in nature. And they're all over the map. To play them "realistic" you would have to get a fixer call/make a fixer call, accept the job (closing out all the other jobs temporarily after you accept, because you're already doing a job for them), travel across the map to wherever, shoot five tyger claws or whatever, call back, deliver the goods, and complete.
Sounds cool until you cross the map fifty or sixty times with other gigs unavailable just to blast a couple gangbangers. Or when you have to work through gigs in a semi sequential manner - can't do B until A (or you reject A). So I'm willing to suspend my disbelief slightly in the name of convenience even if Wakkao isn't actually tracking V with location services.
Yeah, sounds almost as cool as fixers calling you every 30sec to sell you a car or give you some rando job while you're in the middle of something else, like an important convo or a gunfight. I'll take the realism. I don't mind driving around to complete jobs and get paid, I don't use fast travel in the game and drive/walk a lot anyway. I like the sense that I'm in control of the jobs I take, not the fixers.
