We establish arithmetical properties and provide essential bounds for bi-sequences of approximation coefficients associated with the natural extension of maps, leading to continued fraction-like expansions. These maps are realized as the fractional part of Möbius transformations which carry the end points of the unit interval to zero and infinity, extending the classical regular and backwards continued fraction expansions.
