I typically rely on a single website when planning my rover adventures:


Originally F6FVY put it together but it was later updated F5UKW.  You
can enter your home six digit grid and then work you way down to the
areas you will be visiting.  It utilizes the Google API which means
you can look at map or satellite views.

On my phone (Android) I utilize an application called LocatorDROID to
tell me my 6 digit grid plus heading and distance to other grids.

The QRZ.com GridMapper (www.qrz.com/gridmapper) will convert LAT/LON
to grid but I still prefer the QTHLocator site referenced above.
