A micro SD card is the correct memory card for the 14xx series. A 2 GB should be just fine. Some units can not handle a large memory SD card. This has nothing to do with the physical size however.
Are you sure it isn't a micro SD card that is inserted into a standard SD card adapter? A standard SD card is much larger and will not fit into the 14xx series. Look at the end of the SD card that does not have the gold pins and see if there is a ridge where the micro SD card may be inserted into the larger standard SD adapter. Using a fingernail, you can slide the micro SD card out from the SD card adapter. Also, the micro SD card will only insert one way. Try flipping it over and inserting it again, always with the gold pins facing the Nuvi.
It is possible as long as the map is Garmin compatible. However even with a trucker navigation map installed, the nuvi 260w will not function as a trucking GPS as the routing and IQ of the nuvi 260w does not have the capability to operate in this manner. The nuvi 260w does not have a trucking mode to allow for the input of specific truck information like truck and trailer length and gross vehicle weight to use as factors on determining the best route for the specific truck/trailer combination. I would recommend using a GPS specifically designed for trucking like the Garmin Dezl. http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-dezl-560lmt.html

do you have the sd card loaded and fully seated? You are only getting the 4 states loaded on the hard drive. The rest are on the SD card. If you need a new SD card, download it from your CD that came with the unit to a new SD card. I use my computer whcih has an sd card slot. I sell them on ebay for $22.
Try to fix the sd card with some recovery software (recuva or similar) and transfer the data to a new card. If you have the installation disk, use that to copy the data to a new card. Do not use the corrupted card, since you might lock up the device for good.
The other solution was to send it to Fine Digital but they closed their doors in the US so they no longer support us customers. Because of this I made a DVD with map data I purchased from them before they closed and I added much better instructions; this DVD updates the firmware in the unit and loads the last map data issued to the SD card. you would need a PC with a DVD drive and SD card reader to use it. you can find these DVDs on ebay for $18 which basically covers my costs only.
FIRST THING , Backup the SD card. To format an SD card you insert SD card into card reader slot on a PC or a SD card reader. Then find the SD card Icon in 'my computer'. Then hover over it with the mouse and right click , choose 'format' from that drop-down menue. REMEMBER .... EVERYTHING ON THE CARD WILL BE DELETED ! *** WARNING *** The card will not work in the tomtom once it has been formatted.
