GTA Online – How to Evade the Cops

The mini-map in the bottom left corner of your screen is a vital key of escaping the cops. However, owning to the visibility restrictions; the map will not allow you to see a larger portion of the map while driving.

While escaping the cops; press ‘Down’ twice on the D-Pad and your mini-map will get enlarged allowing you to see a large portion of the map. This will allow you to see the direction from where the cops are approaching you; so that you can plan your escape accordingly!

You can also make the map permanently large via the options menu but this can be a distraction for some players.
