Its normal for the temperature gauge to be at almost half when the engine is warm. If it rise above the half then you have cause for concern or if it is well below half when your car is really warm, then you may want to check it out as well.

Or the thermostat might be faulty which raises the temprature at which the thermostat starts to open. Giving a high reading on the gauge. if it gets too hot you might be at risk of blowing a pype or head gasket. If so replace thermostat. Check for a loose wire to the temp sensor as well. See if the radiator fan turns on when temp rises. If not check a fuse or the radiator fan temprature switch might be faulty.
Sounds like there is an issue with the Temperature Sensor that controls the gauge on your dash. The Temp sensor is located on the engine block. In order to assist you further in locating exactly where this sensor is i would need to know what engine is in this vehicle?
temp guages are just a guide,they vary considrably,and as long as the car runs fine,no warning lights/lack of power all is fine....(depends what you are used to,mine runs at 110 with a guage from 80 to 120.)
