In MicroStrategy Mobile client 10 and lower, ESRI map could be only supported in Visual Insight (VI) dashboard. Starting from MicroStrategy Mobile client 10.1 for iOS, ESRI map is supported in MicroStrategy Report Services Document (RSD), too. But basically, MicroStrategy Mobile use Apple Map as the base map for both the Google and ESRI Map defined on Web. So the new feature does not mean MicroStrategy Mobile client can directly display ESRI Map on iOS now, but only use Apple Map on mobile to display the ESRI Map defined on Web instead of showing it as Grid in 10 and lower. The following table shows the details:
