You don't say which software tool you are using to extract and store the tracks.

 

I'm a Garmin person myself, and it works fine for me when:

 

(1) Tracks are dumped from GPS to PC, and saved in .GPX format.

 

(2) GPX file opened directly in GE. Interestingly, this displays the "track" as a line, but not any points along it. Just the line.

 

I'm pretty sure that the GPX file must show the correct attribute of a track, for this to work as you want it to...

... and so on.
