truck running hot or bad guage ?

i have a 96 chevy 7.4 liter ( 454) with 70,000 miles and i have noticed temp guage running 210 when normal driving then when i get to stop light it moves up to about 220 then when start driving again back to 210 . Dealership put the tech computer on it and it said something different that guage, tech pc said when after idling for a straight hour it was 198. Dealership put a new thermostate on it plus a new block sensor( the sensor down on the head ) which made no difference in guage reading on the truck .Dealership said it might bea bad guage or a airpocket where sensor runs but really has no answers , they said since it was reading ok with the tech computer not to worry about it till it got up in red . For the life of me i cant remember how long it has been doing this , maybe since i got it ?I do know i watch all guages closer now than before since a friend burnt a motor up .Does anyone else have any ideas BTW all fans including aux fan are working corectly
