Unhappy Right Angle DC adapter?

I see on my 400 that my DC power adapter for my GPS is large enough I can't close the glove box. Is there any such thing as a smaller, right angle DC adapter so I CAN close the glove box? I won't use the GPS often enough to warrant a permanent install. Thanks!

I think what the OP is looking for is a plug that is shorter to fit into his 12V socket. What I did was buy a male (shortest possible) 12V plug at a local auto supplier, and a female plug. Wired a short length of wire between them and presto, a plug that can be turned to any angle. Just plug your GPS plug into the new socket.
Or, find a 12V plug/socket extension cord (also available at many auto parts stores), and cut/splice the cord to the length you need. That way you'll have molded plugs at each end. A bit of solder, a bit of heat-shrink to cover the join and you're good to go.

It's even easier than that. I bought a 12v "Y" adapter that had a shorter plug than the one on my Garmin GPS and which would allow the door to close. There was no need to do any cutting or splicing. Last week I plugged my phone into the other plug to charge at the same time. It was nice having a second outlet, although there are a lot of wires crammed into that glove box!
