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.
The SD memory card slot is spring loaded, to insert the memory card insert the card into the SD memory slot with the SD card contacts going in first and gently push it in until it locks in place. NOTE if the SD card does not slide into the slot easily then the SD memory card has been inserted back to front, turn the SD card around and insert it again. To remove an installed SD memory card, press the SD memory card and it will pop out slightly then you can then pull out the SD memory card.
Most likely the SD card is not being pushed in far enough to lock into place. You really need to use your fingernail to push it in past flush until you hear a clicking sound, at which point the card will lock into place.
Here are full instructions for insertion and removal of the SD card: Insert the memory card with the metal contacts going into the slot first and facing up at you. In other words the SD card label should be upside down when you insert it this way. You need to push the card in past flush to have the spring mechanism lock the card into place. To get the card out of the slot, push the card in past flush and then the spring mechanism will release it. You will hear a click when the card locks into place or is released from the slot.
Most new 4GB and larger cards are SDHC cards (look on the card). Although they look exactly the same as a standard SD card, they are not. Unfortunately, there is no way that these cards will work with your camera, as it was designed before the SDHC format came out. As you've dsicovered, 2GB and less are standard SD cards, and will work with your camera.
There were a few standard 4GB cards produced a few years ago, most notably by ADATA (I have one that I use in my A620). Unfortunately, these are rare now, and are somewhat expensive if found on eBay.
Beyond 2GB SD Card this model can not support. Why? because this model carries the logo SD, where as 2gb is the maximum, although there are some companies manufacturing SD with the capacity of more 2 GB but this is illegal(not standard for SD) do not conform with SD. New models can support HCSD (High Capacity SD) as far as 32GB can be found in the market. Hope this helps
THe HC chip set for SD's and micro SD's have different programming in them and are unfortunately not backwards compatable with a standard SD host port. For you laptop, I reccoment getting a USB SD chip adapter. They're only like $6-$10 depending upon the brand. For your phone, however, I reccomend you take it back to the store for a trade-in on a standard SD chip, or for a complete refund so you can buy one from a store that carries standards.
The SD/MMC memory slot is already configured to read standard and HDSD cards. Just remove the DELL blank from the slot by pushing it in until it clicks and release it. Then pull it out. Insert the SD/MMC card into the slot and push it in until it clicks. The DELL Blank is shorter than an actual SD/MMC card, so don't try to push the SD/MMC card any further than the 'click'. Remove by pushing in until it clicks, release, remove.
