That your temp guage gets to the middle btw H and C does not mean its overheating.

You need to be clearer about your concern sir.

Scan would not cure overheating. Its either you have an air lock in your cooling system (easy to remedy), cooling fan faulty(easy to remedy), thermostat faulty and not opening(easy to remedy) or you have an head gasket issue (big problem).
