Trans temp and coolant temp different?

My trans temp shows normal but once it is warmed up the coolant temperature is still a little cool. They are factory gauges so they do not show exact temperatures. I just thought it was odd that they were different.

your transmission fluid bypasses the radiator until it hits 180
so don't expect the ECT and trans temp be the same after the truck has been driven for a while when your monitoring
