  • 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( So I think flutter_map(leaflet based) is not compatible with this type of pricing, right? But I was wondering if the open source maplibre( is ok for this type of pricing.

  • Max zoom levels?

    Yes, I'm using the Flutter MapBox GL project (that uses the native implementation, which is mostly written in C++). I'm using vector tiles, and it's getting down to 1.35cm/pixel for iOS and .12cm/pixel for Android at my latitude; I believe this is level 22 for iOS and 25.5 for Android.

    Then watchPosition from @react-native-community/geolocation is definitely the way to go. Here's a link to the example in their repo. This will constantly update the position state variable, which you can then send to a realtime service which other users are subscribed to and consuming. (Depending on your implementation, could be a websocket or some pub/sub service... I've worked with Pusher Channels before for something similar.)
  • Will ReactNative Give User's Phone Location?

    For location, you can use the [geolocation library]( If for some reason the user blocks this permission, a neat little trick is to call this API, [\]([]( They will get the users Longitude and Latitude based on the requesting IP. Of course, that will be masked if they have a VPN running. But it is a second attempt at getting a location.
