Phone cannot pair with RPI and external BT

Since OpenAuto Pro version 4.0 it is mandatory to use external Bluetooth dongle which is not based on Broadcom chip.
I now have an external bluetooth Dongle. I have set the bluetooth setting to Local. But the handsfree call doesnt land on my speaker.It still uses my mobile's mike and speaker.
Will the external bluetooth dongle show up as Open Auto Pro in the Mobile? In my case, it shows as Open Auto Pro and when i try to pair, it says cant pair..
Does it mean the Bluetooth Dongle isnt working??
I tried to use the command sudo btswitch external in Raspbian.
It says "command not found".
So, I exited the Open AutoPro and swtiched off the Bluetooth in the Raspbian OS. Is this OK to do?

If i choose bluetooth setting as none, the calls are made with voice commands and the mic and speaker of the phone is utilized.
Please suggest if this is a problem of the bluetooth dongle
I am looking forward to make this functional, and i am struggling a little bit on thishands free feature.
Is there any other setting that needs to be enabled?

BT setting available in OAP are described in User Guide: http://bluewavestudio.io/resources/opena...ser_guide/

The bt switch command is not supported as only external BT should be used.

You can also have a look at this movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5x_KQEwgiEE

This functionality is quite straightforward from user point of view.

What BT dongle do you use?

Hi,
BT Dongle is of  a brand called FEDUS. Ordered it on Amazon in India. It is a CSR 4.0 Dongle as suggested.

Did you pair your phone with Raspberry PI and granted access to make and receiver voice calls?
