Default Its Getting Hot Out There

I have a solid windshield in my golf cart. It folds down, but the wind bothers my eyes when driving.

How can I keep cool? Replace the windshield with one that has the lower tilting section? Get one with louvers?

Anyone had luck with a fan? I have a USB port. What kind of fan? Where and how did you mount it? Any sources for one?

All suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks. Can you please expand on what type? Where you got it? Cost? Did you install it yourself? Anything you'd improve about it?

I just put on my sunglasses to protect my eyes.

I replaced the folding down version with the windshield that has the lower tilting section and it is great!
It allows for great airflow into the cart, but isn’t blasting me in the face.
I also wear wrap around sunglasses!

Three speed fan, mounts on lower windshield via suction, $21.99. Fairly effective. Moves the air. Needs a converter from USB to cigarette lighter-type plug.

I found that on my motorcycle also but you can get a different style of sunglasses that surrounds and protect your eyes better.
