powerlet for gps ?

In the past I've used the gps hardwire cable to power my gps direct from the battery via inline fuse.

I'll be installing the HDB setup soon which will include a low profile powerlet socket in the top clamp.

Rather than running the gps hardwire cable to the battery, I'm thinking of hardwiring the powerlet socket direct to the battery with inline fuse, then attach the low profile right angle powerlet plug to the end of the gps hardwire cable.

That way I dont have a cable dangling around when the gps is not on the bike. The only other use for the powerlet will be stationary use such as tyre pump or usb phone charger.

Question

Will the right angle powerlet plug to powerlet socket be a secure enough connection to provide uninterrupted power to the gps when riding over rough terrain ?
