  • MAU pricing questions

    1) I would like to use the Maps SDKs for Mobile pricing, so 25k MAU(monthly active users) free tier. If I have understood correctly I have to use the Mapbox Sdk for iOS and Android, in my case the flutter port(https://github.com/flutter-mapbox-gl/maps).

But I was wondering if the open source maplibre(https://github.com/m0nac0/flutter-maplibre-gl) is ok for this type of pricing.
