I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Looked at the 2015 CR-V Navigation Manual (pdf attached)

No contact limit is mentioned???
Also the error message section does not mention any such error message:
 "that the iPhone has too many contacts for it to work" ???

Back up contacts then reduce contacts until the error message stops.
It may not be the number of contacts rather than a Bluetooth data limit.
Try 2000 or less, otherwise:
