If you transfer a route to the unit you have to activate each route to get it to hook the waypoints together with route lines. Until you do that it will just be "an array of waypoints" as you described.
eTrex has an option for routes, and it hooks the waypoints, but it just does not feel right, it fills the memory with waypoints with no particular meaning. I cannot draw a track as detailed as route with the route tool.
