Question Adding Monitors to Laptop Help

Well when you canít figure it out....ask the people who know!
Iím new to the board and after reading some threads Iím not sure if I should even be here.
Most everything is way over my head. Hope you can help me.

I have a HP pavilion ze4300 on my boat. Itís primary use is for digital chart navigation.

Itís my desire to keep this inside on a table. I would like to add two monitors in two different locations. Can this be done? I can go cable or wireless.

Thank you for your time,

Ron D.

Well it would need to be done with cables. There are may monitor splitters available so all you would need is one of those and an extension cable to connect everything up.

Dave thank you for the reply. Each cable would be between 15-20'. Is this a standard cable that can be purchased with the ends attached? I supose I could find them at Best Buy or some computer store along with the splitter.
