GPX track and GPX route should both allow navigation on the Edge, as
explained here: http://ridewithgps.com/edge_705. The problem with GPX
route is that it is limited in number of points. GPX track is
preferable. It is a course file (TCX) which does not allow navigation

This does not change anything, I have an Oxford to Blenheim palace GPX
track which behaves the same way (the begin overlays the end point at
Blenheim palace).

This is puzzling indeed.
