Sharpening by hand is much better than carrying them somewhere.
Placing two large hex bolt heads together like this:

/ \

Will give you the correct angle between the two cutting edges. Check the bit tip frequently in the angle between the bolt heads as each side is sharpened. The taper away from that leading edge just needs to be the same angle for both sides. Too steep makes a weak edge that won't last as long.
