Default where to source a small 12v monitor?

I have an underwater fish camera that has a 3x3" b+w 12v monitor that is too small or im getting too old. I want to replace it with an inexpensive 6-7" b+w or color monitor. An electronics whiz i am not but can wire things. Will a movie monitor from a mini van work for me or where can i source one? The fish adn I thank you.

Or a portable DVD player designed to be used in a automobile.

Search for it in automobile gadget shops.
And remember, when it is 12V, think auto shops first.

Six inches might be small for a DVD player. The one I have is about 8 inches, the Grand-kids dropped it, so it doesn't play DVD's anymore but it works fine as a read-out on my audio system CD/DVD player. Now I don't need to turn on the TV to play CD's. And the price was free.
