Default Can you transfer Garmin base maps unit to unit?

So here is my dilemma, my Garmin Echomap 74sv (w/ Coastal base maps) has stopped working and will need service. I'd like to go out this weekend (Coastal NC) and wouldnt feel too comfortable without navigation/depth finder etc so Im thinking of buying a second smaller unit to use in the meantime utilizing my same transducer/wiring etc. And then when I get my Echomap 74sv, turn the smaller unit into a dedicated navigator/charter.

So my question is, if I bought a second unit w/ LakeVu (inland base maps), could I also transfer the coastal base maps from my original unit to it? And use either. I'd rather not spend the extra 150/200 for the HD maps garmin offers.

Thanks for any input.
