I am not positive on the 597, but your screens focus may need to be on the GPS portion, then go into menu options.  You may be able to make some selections in there.

Put the chip in and then turn the unit on. Keep hitting the view or exit button until the map overlay screen appears. Might take a few minutes to get a gps connection but that's all you should have to do.
