Connect a GPS

I've got an Australian Spec BRP (which has a rectifier + capacitor to create a DC circuit, from which run the blinkers + speedo light). I'd like to connect my Zumo into this circuit to keep some charge on it.

- Would I cause trouble just connecting the zumo directly to this circuit (it doesn't have a battery, I don't know if the voltage/amps are constant enough to be safe for a GPS which is expecting DC).

- If I needed a battery, how would I wire one in? I note that most recomendations say that batteries will take a constant charge of 10% of capacity.
