Pairing Smart connect and 3rd party bluetooth transmitter

I have a cic Trax 42 and the smart connect. I just got my bluetooth streamer from amazon. How do I pair it with the smart connect if its a third party manufacturer? No luck so far.

put the streamer in pairing mode, then put the smart connect in pairing mode by holding the multifunction button and increase volume button until the blue LED starts blinking (about 5-10 seconds). Once both devices are in pairing mode they should automatically connect to each other.

Evil.
