In mapsource here is what I do.
If I did not want to see the tracks-----I'd make another file and copy and paste the things you wanted to see into it---you could save it and call it the same name as the old file but add "Without Tracks".
Or--------in the running file----you could delete the tracks------just don't save it as you close the file or they'll be gone.
I do both of these things all the time.
