Is 80C too low of a running temp for a M104?

It has been a little chilly in the mornings lately and I have had the heat on. The thermostat must be a low operating one because the temp is about 80C. Is that too low of an operating temp for a historically hot running M104 engine design? The thermostat was replaced last summer. Does the gauge read the engine temp or the coolant temp?
