Travel Midwest is the official mobile app of the popular travelmidwest.com travel website. It provides a traffic map for the Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison and Rockford metropolitan areas, the Quad Cities, northwest Indiana, and southwestern Michigan. Map layers include Travel Times, Expressway Congestion, Arterial Congestion, Expressway Construction, Arterial Construction, Incidents, and Weather. Select from preset maps, center the map on your current position, or have the app track your position in real-time as you travel using the "Follow Me" feature, new in this version. Move and zoom the map anywhere in the coverage area, tap on the map to get details about incidents, travel times, construction, or to view camera images. Get various types of notices from different geographic areas and view the Travel Times and Incident reports. An indispensable app for commuters and all regional travelers.

v2.0.5 Added app detection of which type of map rendering is currently being used on the travelmidwest.com servers. The map rendering on the servers will be changed from its current appearance to a Mercator (pure flat) appearance a few days after this mobile app version is deployed. This will make all maps, at all locations and zoom levels appear with straight and uniform north-south and east-west orientations, with no Earth curvature distortions.
