Like the weapon system, switching between radio stations is now done by bringing up a radio station wheel to jump to any station, or turn off the radio. In the PlayStation 4 version, the player can utilise the touch pad to change stations by swiping up or down. When using the radio station wheel in GTA V , or in Director Mode , the game will revert to slow motion while changing stations.
