"A mysterious tablet with a glowing center. You've never seen this device before, and yet...there's something familiar about it."
— In-game description

The Sheikah Slate is a key item in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is found by Link in the Shrine of Resurrection. A mysterious voice tells him that it will help him along his journey.

The slate functions as a map, and is equipped with a scope feature for Link to view faraway parts of Hyrule. It also allows Link to drop "pins", similar to beacons from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Link can use several Runes after having upgraded the slate from a Shrine's pedestal, upon completion of a related trial offered by a Sheikah Monk.

One of the Sheikah Slate's runes is a Camera, and the slate includes an Album which holds up to 48 photos taken by the player. Taking photos of materials, creatures, and treasure catalogs the photographed items into the Hyrule Compendium.

Sheikah Sensor

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Link can upgrade the Sheikah Sensor from Impa at Kakariko Village. If Link has a sufficient amount of Ancient parts, then he can upgrade the Sheikah Sensor, as well as Runes, before the journey back to Impa.

Spoiler warning: Spoilers end here.
