I have had my GXP since new and once the engine is warmed up it remains constant at 200 no matter what the temperature is outside or if you are just idling or going 60 mph down the highway. (According to the gauge).

While I've had my GXP for only 5 months, once warmed up with outside temps of 80 degrees with AC on or -5 degrees F with the heater on, it doesn't matter sitting and idling or running down the highway at 70 mph the gauge is always on 200.
