Default Re: Air pressure guages at Fuel Pumps. Do you trust them???

I too have experienced widely varying readings of air pressure gauges in different service stations.
Could anyone please recommend a reasonably accurate & inexpensive(I hope these are not mutually exclusive terms!) tyre pressure gauge?
Since I never drive above 60kmph,I guess I don't really need a dead accurate gauge.

I got this digital gauge from ebay 2 years ago, so far it's working fine. It may not be 100% accurate but good enough for me.

If you are fine with an analog gauge (much cheaper than the digital one), you could get this one (not sure about the quality, though)-

I have a small regular analog pressure gauge from walmart for about 6-7 bucks. Works ok for me!

Also I carry a portable air pump in my trunk - that also has a built in pressure gauge. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000E48C66

Astlewitz, Thanks for your response.The Rs 149 one will do fine for me.I hope its reasonably accurate.
Blakasta, Thanks for your answer.Unfortunately, I have no way of getting someone to bring in the Air pump for me & shipping may turn out to be too expensive.
Would a foot pump be too tough for a senior citizen to operate? If yes, then is there a good quality, reliable electric pump available locally?
TIA.
