It's not unusual. I seem to recall another thread about this. Mine routinely sees temps up to about 230. I don't know if it just where the temp sensor is or maybe they just run a little hot. Mine's been that way since it was practically new. Others have reported the same.
The factory gauge is programmed to ignore the minor temp fluctuations, and really only climbs off of enter when it really heats up. Basically if you did not have an accessory gauge to tell you, you'd never know.
