I have found a workaround for geofencing the MyQ open/close function using Launch Center Pro and the Wink app for IOS.  In Launch Center Pro, I have set a geofence near my house to launch the Wink app to my shortcuts, which has my garage door as the first shortcut.  This isn't the best solution, but until Chamberlain gets with the game it will make less work of having to open the MyQ app, waiting for it to log on and then scrolling to the correct door.

This is what the website says about it, "Launch Center Pro is an app for iPhone and iPad that lets you overcome some of the limitations of iOS and create advanced shortcuts to save you time and get more things done faster."

The geo fence only brings up the option to open the app. I still have to click the app open and garage open for it to work. The geofence works well and I have not had it come on outside the fence or after the initial entry into the fence.
