Powering a GPS on a bike?

I don't have a lot of time, but I basically need to hook up my Tomtom car gps to my bike through its cigarette/utility plug. Is there a small adapter I can buy that goes from my battery to one of these? What can I do?

Be warned, that a lot of thumpers can shake damage a gps. If your bike has noticeable vibrations. You might have to add extra protection to keep your GPS from being destroyed.
