Using Siri

The Siri method is simple enough.

This will drop a pin on Apple Maps in your location.

Than when you need to find it again, say "Hey Siri, where's my car."

This will pull up the location in Maps.

You could also go to the Apple Maps app directly and simply look for the pin.

Or you could go on Apple Maps and search for "parked car".

Once you've got the map pin up, you can use Apple Maps to navigate directly to the parking spot.
