Can you run the rider 550 plugged in the back permanently rather than on its mount

hi. I use my rider in my van but hidden as a camera warning device as the vans nav unit doesn’t have this feature. To hide it where I wish I need to take it off it’s mount and plug directly into the head units socket, hidden behind the rubber at the bottom.
Will this damage the unit used like this permanently? Should I use the mount?
Thanks in advance

    if the charging port is safe + you get a gps signal then go ahead
