monthly active users

For native mobile applications built with the Mapbox Maps, Navigation, and Vision SDKs for iOS, Android, or Unity, we track monthly active users (MAU), also known as mobile users. This is the number of users that accessed Mapbox services within your applications during a given month.

There are a couple different mobile usage measurements that use monthly active users as a unit. The line items that appear on your invoice will vary based on the product and version you are using:
