Google "Grid Square Map" and you can select many maps that make grid
location very easy.

Icom makes a nice PDF one available here:


Also, once you operate VHF more frequently, you'll get to know where they
are just like anything else.

My first time on 6m this weekend, just playing around in the contest.  
On a band with such spotty propagation, it would be nice to know the QTH 
of the stations being worked.  Short of keeping a grid sq. map handy, 
there's no way to know where each grid is.  How about state or section 
in the exchange, too?
