Using existing data with a refined mesh

I'm using icoFoam to solve a 3D problem, and the simulation has to run for a long long time to get the steady state solution. But now I would like to refine my mesh for accuracy, but without starting all the way from the very beginning.
My question is, how can I use the steady state solution of 'U' from the unrefined mesh for the new refined mesh? I don't want to start again from scratch with the refined mesh, so I'm hoping I can somehow use the steady state solution from the unrefined mesh as an initial solution for the refined mesh.
Does anyone have any ideas?

you can use mapfields for that:
mapFields coarseCase -case refineCase
you can also look at user guide, it will help.
