Oh...and now that I remember, once Chekov figured out where he was, why not call for an immediate beamout instead of going outside to be captured by Khan? Let me guess, the transporters couldn't penetrate the cargo bay!
My best guess is that the interference from the storm required them to return to their beam in point for beam out. The transporter can lock onto them if it knows where they are, but it can't scan the area normally because of the storm.
Which brings up another point, if they knew the scanners weren't reliable because of the storm, how can they be trusted to find a planet "completely lifeless?"
