My version of WebUpdater doesn't support the /sacrifice_maps flag, but seems to overwrite maps by default.
I found the information on this german forum:
I just the other day pulled out of the closet my brand new 478 that I never used. I downloaded base camp and went online from base camp and unlocked maps thru mygarmin and the new 2012 city maps downloaded no problem.
