Question about Garmin nuvi 2597LMT 5" GPS Navigator - Lifetime Map & Traffic Updates
Things to check:
1. Make sure that your car receptacle has +12VDC. Try another device to confirm.
2. Make sure that the car charger is working properly. Most have a fuse in the tip. It could be blown. It may not be converting +12VDC to +5VDC which is required to power the GPS. Try another charger with the GPS.
3. Common problem with the 25xx series are loose/broken USB charger ports. This will prevent the unit from powering up with an external power source and will prevent the battery from being charged. Eventually the battery will lose its charge and since the USB charging port is loose, the battery will not charge and the unit will appear dead. More info here:

In order to find other Bluetooth devices, Bluetooth device A must be set to discoverable mode. When set to discoverable, Bluetooth device A will allow other Bluetooth devices to detect its presence and attempt to establish a connection.
You may set your discover setting off if you like (It is recommended that you turn it off when not using the Bluetooth). When the discover setting is off, no other Bluetooth device will be able to find it. Undiscoverable devices can still communicate with each other but they have to initiate communication themselves.
Usually the discoverable device will indicate what type of device it is (Such as a printer, cell phone, headset, etc.) and its Bluetooth device name. The Bluetooth device name is the name that you give the Bluetooth device or the factory name that originally was programmed.
With advanced devices (i.e. computers, smartphones), both users must agree on the Passkey and enter it into their device. The code can be anything you like as long as it is the same for both Bluetooth wireless devices.
On other devices, such as Bluetooth headsets, the Passkey stays the same. Refer to the product's manual for the default passkey. Most often, the default passkey is "0000".
