Thanks. On my device they are just tracks and not routes. I've seen 
Felix's message and your reply, so perhaps the Edge is just different in 
that way.

The track looked fine and was the same as the website map at first glance.

The only way to get more clues is to find the shortest track that 
doesn't work and a very similar one that does and see if there is
anything strange about the difference. And you might have to
find lots of working/not working pairs to see if there is anything 
common between the differences.

If it doesn't work for any track at all, then I would have no idea
about how to even find out what is happing.
