[GPS] Possible to transfer maps from one Magellan GPS to another?

I have two Magellan GPS units (Roadmate 5120 LMTX and Roadmate 1470). The 5120 gets lifetime free map updates, and I just updated it. However, the older unit does not get free map updates. I know there is a legal angle to this, but I'm asking this question for technical purposes:

Is it possible to transfer the map data from one Magellan GPS unit to another model of Magellan GPS unit? If so, how can it be done? Thanks!

It is against your terms of service on your 5120. Your map licensing is per GPS unit.

Update: Even though the GPS unit was out of warranty, Magellan gave me a one-time replacement with a refurbished unit which is working very well now.
