Default Normal Operating Temp

Hey guys quick question. I have a 2010 F150 with the 5.4 and 6 speed auto. I live in California so we regularly see over 95 F. Today was about 105 F. I was watching my temperature and was seeing 205 at idle with ac on, and about 210-212 When cruising at 65 or so. This is all unloaded on flat ground. Do these temps seem ok to you guys or should I start looking for a culprit? Thanks guys

I believe it's stock 192 or 195. Somewhere in the 190s

If it will idle at 205, I would think it would cruise a few degrees cooler with air flowing through the radiator.
