Recommendations for a portable (12V) monitor?

Hi, folks

Do you have any recommendations for a good monitor (for RX and monitoring TX) that I can use while out 'portable' (aka, working out of the back of the truck)? Obviously, it needs to be capable of operating from 12V, and have as wide a variety of inputs as possible, for max versatility.

There are many depending on your pockets. I bought this https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07RBM73KC/ ... fDbQ84NVNG but there are many similar ones out there.

If you've got an old laptop kicking around, then use the screen and buy a driver board from eBay. The one I use has VGA, composite, HDMI and analogue TV in.
