Default c-120 wind arrow ?

On my c120 in the set up menu there is a provision for wind direction . Do you have to have a seperate wind indicator insturment to make this work.

No, no seperate wind indicator insrrument needed

First you turn on the 'wind direction' setting in the set up menu, add it to the data bar, and now this is the tricky part, and I must admit it does not always work, but give it a try.

when you look at the C-120 data bar, lick your index finger real good, must be this finger, don't try another one they won't work, stick it up in the air, close your eyes and just clear your mind of all thoughts (remember do this quick so you don't run into something if you are at the helm) and then you will see the wind direction. Open your eyes and proceed as normal.

One note, once you open your eyes, for some reason, which only Raymarine knows and is supposed to fix in the next software release, the data bar wind direction goes blank again. But it is not a problem since you know the direction.

Oh, and if you find this does not work for you, let some one else try it and they can tell you what they see. Don't lick their finger though, most peoples fingers are nasty tasting, I mean you don't know where index fingers go (and if you do, please do not share as I'm sure that is a personal matter).

And then of course, if nothing is working for you, you can always add a wind vane to your system.
