Galaxy S9 media to 2014 Honda CR-V via USB

*Title Error: Phone kept auto correcting CR-Z to CR-V*

I recently switched from iPhone 6s to Galaxy S9 and am extremely happy with this decision. But there's one thing thats been bugging me and I've looked and looked for a solution, but have found nothing helpful.

I drive a 2014 Honda CR-Z, specifically NOT the EX edition. I could plug my iPhone in and play music over USB just fine. I liked this because I could use the steering wheel controls to change songs. Now that I switched to GS9, whenever I plug my phone into the USB, my onboard display says 'unsupported.'

I've read that this has to do with older Honda models not being built to properly interface with Android's MTP, but I must ask, is there a definitive solution to this?

And let me clarify, my CR-Z has Bluetooth compatibility, but only for phonecalls. I currently use an auxiliary cord. I'd just like to be able to use my steering controls to change the music as I drive. Another thing to note, when charging my phone via the car's built in USB, I've noticed that the phone still slowly loses power. I have since switched to a Samsung Fast Charge DC to USB converter. Is this normal? If I can manage to play music via USB, will I not be able to also charge my phone properly? Please help.
