I jumped on the iOS 13 Public Beta 6 and have this question: I have 2 Apple Homekit Garagedoor openers. How can I default one over the other? The main screen is defaulting to my wife's garage door vs mine. I could tell her to move over but I won't be that bossy.

Could you try re-programming them? Maybe whichever one you add first will choose to automatically default. (I don't have any experience with CarPlay so this is just a guess) :p

I had the same problem and found a workaround (which may be overkill, but it works with iOS 13 GM)...
(0) Park your car near (or in) your garage.
(1) Remove the unwanted (second, third, or fourth) garage door opener(s) from the iPhone's Home app.
(2) Go to your iPhone's Settings app > General > CarPlay > My Car - tap on your car, and then tap "Forget this Car".
(3) Connect your iPhone to your car (in my car, I use a USB to Lightning cable).
(4) Wait for the CarPlay user interface to appear on your car's display, and verify that your desired garage door opener appears in the bottom right corner.
(5) Disconnect your iPhone from your car (unplug the USB connector).
(6) Add your other garage door openers back to the iPhone's Home app.
