USB port in the rain

Been using usb to power my iphone for gps. I leave the cord plugged into the TV usb port all the time, on or off the bike. So the port itself is never covered and one of the usb outlets is always exposed. It gets rained on sometimes (riding, and parked outside)...

Anything to worry about?

I don't know, but the TV is an Italian motorbike, and it is actually a good reason to worry about this. Went to the Garmin GPS route, use sometimes the phone as a complement, but never USB is never plugged when it rains.
